REPORT OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES.

 

To the Honorable, the General Assembly of the State of Iowa:
 

     In connection with the accompanying financial report of the Asylum for the Blind, the undersigned, members of the Board of Trustees, beg leave to submit the following suggestions, which they trust may not be deemed inappropriate at this time.
 

     We are gratified to be able to state that the Institution was never in a more flourishing condition than at the present. The attendance was never before so large, the pupils so generally healthy and contented, and the entire machinery moving in such perfect order and harmony as now.
 

     Since our last report the resignation of Rev. Reed Wilkinson, as principal, has necessitated a change in that important position, and we deem ourselves very fortunate in having secured for that place the services of General J. L. Geddes, whose reputation as a brave and accomplished soldier in the late civil strife has rendered his name familiar in all parts of the State. His service in the Institution during the present term have already fully demonstrated that he is the right man in the right place; and under his efficient management every department gives evidence of increased tone and vigor. 
 

     The appropriation heretofore made for the general expenses of the Institution are found to be amply sufficient for its ordinary wants, and nothing further is needed in that regard. But we desire so day that there is a matter of the utmost importance to the Institution which has hitherto been much overlooked, but which we hope will be seriously considered.  We refer to the musical department.  It is hardly necessary, we apprehend, to call attention to the fact, that the musical education of the blind is by far the most important of all the attainments conferred upon them here.  Aside from the direct pecuniary advantages which it gives them, the amount of consolation and enjoyment which it offers them during the long dreary night of their existence, can hardly be estimated. The General Assembly is not at fault in this matter. All the real wants and necessities of this class of our fellow citizens, which have been presented to that body in past years, have been generously met. The fault hitherto has been with the managers of the Institution in overlooking and failing to call attention to its needs.
 

     By way of explanation we would say at the time of the removal of the asylum to this place, and for some years prior thereto, the musical department was under the management of Professor S. H. Price, a young man, himself blind, and then recently a graduate of the Illinois Institution for the Blind, and owing to his then comparative youth and inexperience, he was devoting his services for a mere pittance of from $300to $400 per annum. While this continued no necessity was felt for a change in legislation as to the salary of a musical professor. But three years ago he left the Institution on account of inadequacy of compensation, since which time the statutory limitations placed upon the salary to be allowed all teachers, except the principal, has rendered it impossible to procure competent musical instruction, and we have, therefore, been compelled to intrust the management of the department to advanced pupils—with what results may readily be conceived.  At the commencement of the present term we again succeeded in procuring the services of Professor Price, but it has only been with the understanding that an appeal would be made to the General Assembly to enlarge the salary allowed for that position, meanwhile he remains at the maximum rates which the statute permits us to give.  The professor is doubtless one of the ablest music teachers in the State, and peculiarly qualified for this position, and we are well satisfied that it would scarcely be possible to supply his place here. We trust the law may be so changed as to enable us to offer a fair compensation for the requisite talent for the position .
 

     Again, the musical instruments in use here are almost literally worn out. This is especially true of the pianos.  There is an imperative necessity for three new instruments to supply the wants of the pupils. The instruments now in use, for the most part, cannot possibly be made to serve any kind of purpose till the meeting of another Legislature; and if suitable provision is not now made, that important branch of education must be neglected. 
 

     In addition to this the Institution has long needed, and we think should be supplied with, a suitable organ.  The vocal exercise cannot be properly conducted without it; and when it is remembered that such an instrument, with slight repairs, would last almost as long as the Institution itself, we are led to hope that this very important item will receive your favorable consideration.
 

     We would not call attention to these wants of the Institution, did we not deem them of pressing importance, and knowing that the matter has been too long neglected.  We now, in behalf of the Institution, and of those unfortunates whose lives are blest and made endurable by its instrumentality, ask your favorable and generous consideration of the necessities we have thus presented.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT

 

His Excellency, Wm. M. Stone, Governor of Iowa:

 

     Sir:—In conformity with an act of the Tenth General Assembly, I have the honor to present the Eighth Biennial Report of the Iowa Institution for the Education of the Blind.

 

     It is a source of much gratification to be able to report the continued prosperity of the Institution. The past two years experience has but served to increase the conviction of its utility; and the gratifying results attained in the normal and intellectual training of the blind, must continue to commend it to the fostering care of the Legislature.

LOCATION.

     The Institution is beautifully located, on a gentle eminence immediately west of the corporate limits of the town of Vinton, in the county of Benton. The view from the cupola of the building is very fine, presenting to the spectator an epitome of our lovely State. The undulating prairie extending from the south and west of the building as far as the eye can pierce is dotted with numerous groves, farm and school houses, thus bearing upon its bosom the impress of an industrious thrifty and intelligent population.

 

     Looking toward the north and east, distant about one-half mile, the Cedar River, with its dense fringe of excellent timber, bursts upon the view.  On the right bank is situated the enterprising town of Vinton, with a railroad in process of completion–-a link in the great iron artery which will soon connect St. Paul, Minn., with St. Louise, Mo.—and destined ere long to become a great manufacturing centre. The salubrity of the climate is unsurpassed in this State, of which fact the uninterrupted good health of the inmates of the Institution is sufficient evidence.  The grounds belonging to the Institution, comprise forty acres of excellent land, divided into ten acre lots, one of which contains a thriving young orchard, also shade trees and ornamental shrubbery. The other lots are used for pasture and raising corn for the manufacture of brooms.

BUILDINGS.

     The buildings for the use of the Institution are commodious and consist of the main building, which is built of an excellent quality of stone taken from quarries in the vicinity, and presents a handsome and imposing appearance.  Its massive and elegant style of architecture is surpassed by very few public buildings in the State.

 

     The broom and brush factory is a large two story brick, situated about two rods from S. W. Angle of the main building, and is admirably arranged and supplied with the machinery necessary for the manufacture of brooms and brushes.

 

     The barn, stable and sheds are placed in rear of the main building, are built of wood, and answer well the purposes for which they were erected. 

NUMBER OF PUPILS.

     The number of pupils enrolled during the period covered by this report is seventy-eight; the average attendance, fifty. The number present this term, which commenced on the 1st September, is fifty, which I am informed are as many as have ever been in attendance at the commencement of a term.  As a usual thing, all the pupils do not arrive until about the second quarter of each term. 

TEACHERS AND OFFICERS.

     The Institution has five teachers, besides the Principal; two for the literary, one for the musical, and two for the industrial departments.

 

     The literary department is conducted by Miss Lizzie Kiddoo and Miss Jennie L. Wilson. These ladies are well qualified for the position, and are kind and devoted in the discharge of their important duties.

 

     The music department is under the direction of Professor S. H. Price. It is unnecessary for me to say anything in regard to the qualifications of this gentlemen. His proficiency in the science of music, and his success in teaching the blind, is well known both in this State and Illinois.

 

     Mr. John Cisna teachers in the male mechanical department of the Institution, which embraces the manufacture of brooms and brushes.  Mr. Cisna has been connected with the Institution as teacher in this department for a number of years, and is eminently successful, although blind himself, in teaching the trade to others. Many who received their instruction from him, are now making a comfortable living by manufacturing brooms and brushes.

 

     Miss Anna Mary Rittgers teaches in the industrial department for the females, which embraces fancy bead work, sewing, and knitting.  Miss Rittgers has also been a teacher in the Institution for a number of years, and is well qualified for directing this branch of instruction.

 

     The Matron of the Institution is Mrs. N. T. Morton, a lady eminently fitted for the discharge of the onerous duties belonging to this important office, and her long experience in that capacity renders her services exceedingly valuable.

COURSE OF INSTRUCTION.

     The course of studies for the past two years has consisted of reading in raised print, writing, spelling, history, ancient and modern grammar, geography, rhetoric, logic, and belles letters, natural, moral and mental philosophy, arithmetic, mental and written algebra and geometry. It is truly astonishing to witness the industry evinced, and the proficiency attained in most of those branches of learning, and more especially in the mathematics.

 

     Under the able supervision of Professor Price, our music department is in a very flourishing condition. Music is an important feature in our course of instruction, and all who possess good musical talent, receive not merely a superficial knowledge of the art, but a systematic and thorough course of training, so as to enable them to become successful teachers.

 

     In the mechanical department the same thoroughness is maintained. The male pupils are taught to make brooms and brushes, and the females, bead work, sewing and knitting.

GOVERNMENT.

     The comparatively helpless condition of the blind brings them in more immediate contact with the teachers and officers of the Institution than is permitted in schools of a similar character for seeing.  As a consequence the government partakes largely of a parental character, but while it is kind and patient, it is also just and decided.

 

     The blind, as a result of their infirmity, have some peculiarities. In youth they appear to be very happy, and even gay, but as they arrive at maturer age, they seem more disposed to be restless, uneasy, desirous of change, and discontented with their condition. They seem generally endowed with keen perceptions, and are usually admirable judges of character.  Although grateful for any kindness shown them, they seem to repel any expression of sympathy, especially from the curious, and from that reason apparently they choose their associates from among their own class in preference to all others.

CAPABILITY OF THE BLIND.

     Mathematics, philosophy and music, appear to be the studies which suit the peculiar bent of their minds, and to which they devote their attention with the greatest perseverance and pleasure.  The facility they evince in the acquisition of knowledge is very great, and they appear capable of receiving the highest degree of intellectual culture. 

 

     The number of blind persons who have attained distinction in art and science is very large, and it seems to me very evident that the only obstacle to their improvement and attainments in knowledge, equal to that of the seeing, would arise from the want of the apparatus necessary to impact the instruction.

 

     We have pupils here at present who received their instruction at this Institution, that are intimately acquainted with every proposition and able to demonstrate every problem in Davis’ Legandre, orally, with the greatest accuracy and ease. The impression of geometrical figures, when once understood, is indelibly fixed upon their minds, and seems to pass in panoramic view at their pleasure.  The same seems to be the case in music. The diagrams of the various musical scales appear in bold relief to their imaginations, and they are able to read them there with as much readiness and ease as can the seeing from a music book. Their ability to impact knowledge, especially to those of their own class, is as great as can be found among the seeing.  The material is always ready, and their illustrations generally are very happy.

 

     This characteristic I have had ample opportunity of observing, as we employ many of the pupils as assistant teachers.  During the past and present term, Mr. George Tannihill, a pupil of the Institution, and totally blind, has taught a class in the higher mathematics very successfully, and I think him well qualified to teach that important branch of knowledge in any of our State schools and colleges.  Mr. Frank Hickok and Miss Laura Minkler are well advanced in mathematics, and have made most successful teachers in the Institution. 

 

     In the music department, Mr. Sylvanus Slaughter, Mr. Jacob Niemeyer and Mrs. Jose Cisna, pupils in the Institution, and totally blind, have proved their ability to teach in an eminent degree.  They also have been employed as assistants during the past and present term.

STATISTICS.

     Through the unwearied and disinterested efforts of Mr. Samuel Bacon, of Iowa City, this Institution was first established in 1853. Mr. Bacon was also the founder of the Asylum for the Blind in Jacksonville, Illinois. The Institution is free to all the blind of Iowa who are susceptible of education, of proper age, good mental character, and desirous of availing themselves of its privileges. 

 

     The blind of other States are also admitted, upon the payment of the sum of $170.00 per pupil, provided they possess the other necessary qualifications.  It was first organized at Iowa City, under the able superintendence of its founder, whose long experience as a teacher of the blind did much in securing its success, and commending it to the fostering care of our people. The wise and benevolent legislation exemplified in everything pertaining to its interests, has had the effect of placing it in a very enviable position, and rendering it second to no school of like character in our country. In the month of August, 1862, the Institution was removed from Iowa City to Vinton, Benton county. At this time it was under the superintendence of the Rev. O. Clark, who resigned at the close of 1864.  His place was filled by the Rev. Reed Wilkinson, who tendered his resignation in June, 1867, when the present incumbent was appointed to fill the vacancy.

 

     The number of blind who have enjoyed the advantages of the Institution since its establishment is one hundred and fifty; the number of deaths, twelve; and the number of those who in the ordinary course of things have terminated their connection with the Institution since its organization is eighty-eight, which leaves our present number fifty.

 

     The cause of blindness of the pupils since the establishment of the Institution are the following.

 

Inflammation 49
Bad Treatment 2
Small Pox 5
Scrofula 7
Neuralgia 1
Fever 5
Opthalmia 1
Accident 39
Congenital 22
Opacity 2
Measles 6
Cataract 5
Cancer 1
Amaurosis 4
Water on the brain 1

 

     The census returns for 1866 show the number of blind in Iowa to be 295, the same number as shown by the census of 1863. It appears from these figures that the late war has not increased the number of blind, as was generally expected.  I am inclined to believe the census inaccurate in this respect, and would suggest that more efficient means be adopted for obtaining the statistics of the blind of the State.

 

     The number of blind receiving the benefits of the Institution at present is 16 per cent, of the total number in the State.

 

     It will be seen by the following table taken from the report of the United States census for 1860, that with the exception of the States of Ohio, Indiana and Wisconsin, our percentage of blind receiving the benefits of the Institution, is greater than that of any other State :

 

State No. of Blind

1860

Per cent of Blind

institution

New Englend 1295 144 11%
New York 1768 143 8%
Pennsylvania 1187 156 13%
Maryland 298 31 10%
Ohio 899 164 18%
Indiana 530 109 21%
Illinois 476 70 15%
Kentucky 674 53 8%
Missouri 448 50 15%
Iowa 295 50 16%
Wisconsin 220 57 26%

 

     The number of blind receiving the benefits of the Institution may appear small, when compared with the number in the State; but it is ascertained that a larger per centage are too old to receive instruction; a large part too young, and a still greater number unable to attend from sickness or disease.

 

INDUSTRIAL DEPARTMENT.

 

     The mechanical departments of the Institution have been very successfully sustained.  During the past two years, fifty pupils have been taught broom and brush making.     

     All the female pupils have more of less knowledge of bead and worsted work, and many attain great proficiency in this department.  The following tables exhibit the financial condition of these departments for the period covered by this report, as it appears in the books of the Institution.

 

MALE DEPARTMENT

Received for brooms, brushes, &c.,  $731.53
Expended for materials,         68.35
Proceeds   $665.18

 

FEMALE DEPARTMENT

Received for bead and worsted work $356.26
Expended for materials,           226.41
Proceeds  $129.85

 

CURRENT EXPENSES.

 

     Although the appropriations made by the Legislature are very liberal and sufficient to defray the current expenses of the Institution, we have been obliged to intrench largely upon them from time to time to meet contingencies.  During last vacation the roof of the workshop was carried away by a storm, and was replaced at an expense of over $500.  The Institution has never been properly furnished, and the expense incurred in adding to our furniture, replacing our bedding, carpets and matting, and in making improvements and repairs for which no special appropriations have been made is necessarily great.

     The amount of current expenses, including improvements, salaries, and clothing furnished pupils from December 1st, 1865, to October 31st, 1867, inclusive, are as follows:

Clothing   $    319.10
Salaries  6,208.49
Current Expenses  17,664.45
Improvements            5,803.05
  $29,995.09

 

     The abstracts and vouchers accompanying this report will exhibit the various articles purchased, and the Treasurer’s Report the expenditures for improvements and cash received.  

     In submission, I would respectfully call your attention to to the report of the Board of Trustees, in regard to the pressing necessity for new musical instruments. I earnestly hope these important matters will not be overlooked, and that the limitation of salaries may be removed, especially in regard to the musical department, so as to enable us to procure be best talent for that important branch of education.

     Allow me to remark, in conclusion, that the citizens of Iowa have good reason to be proud of their State Institution. They rank among the first in our land. Our noble young State, “first in war,” has proved her devoted to the principles of liberty on every battle-field of the late civil strife; and through the blessings of a kind providence she is not behind her sister States in cultivating the arts of peace, and in the development of every thing conducive to the establishment of a religious, moral and intellectual civilization.

                                                                       Respectfully submitted   JAMES l. GEDDES
Vinton, December, 1867.                                                                          Superintendent

NOTE -- The actual deficit is larger than shown by this report, owing to the fact that two months of the present quarter’s salaries have already accumulated. But the quarter’s appropriation falling due the 19th inst. will be sufficient to meet all the liabilities of the Institution up to the end of the quarter, December 1, 1867.
