The Bachelor Of Science
A fact without precedent has just happened at the Sorbonne. A young deaf
mute, M. Dusuzeau, underwent recently with success the examinations for
the degree of "Bachelor of Science." This distinguished pupil has
answered by writing all the questions which have been put to him. This
success, unexpected a few years ago, greatly honours the Imperial
Institution in Paris, and is due to the high standard which its learned
director, M. Vaisse, maintains in the studies, and to the devotedness of
the censor, M. Valade Reoni, head master of the instruction, and who has
been the affectionate master of M. Dusuzeau.
M. Dusuzeau was married on the third of March last, at the church of St.
Germain, l'Auxerrois, Paris, to Miss Matilda Freeman, daughter of James
B. Freeman, Esq., of Philadelphia, in the presence of a distinguished
circle of friends. Miss Freeman stayed in England some months in 1882,
and is therefore well known to many of our deaf and dumb friends.
