Deaf History:
Agatha Tiegel Hanson

Fifth painting of Agatha Tiegel Hanson, to be replaced for an errata art.

This is the actual Agatha Tiegel Hanson, shown above.
Almost a year later after I did the original painting of Agatha Tiegel Hanson,
shown below with a hat. This is Agatha's sister and not her.
Now the original painting has become an 'errata art.'

Description about the painting: Painted in June 8, 2011
This painting is Agatha Tiegel Hanson (1873-1959). She was the first Deaf woman to graduate from Gallaudet College with a four year degree. She was at the top of the class. At the graduation commencement in 1893, she was a Valedictorian. She delivered her address, "The Intellect of Women", a very powerful presentation . This is important to remember her because she delivered this address twenty-seven years before women could vote in the United States.
