In 1872, Percival Hall, Sr. was brought into the world today and became second president of Gallaudet College for 35 years starting in 1910; He was an alumnus for Harvard, Yale as well as Gallaudet College Normal School. If you see a building called Hall Memorial Building on campus, it is the reason it is named after Percival in his honor. He made a major contribution for Deaf community while he was president there. Happy birthday, Percival!
His father, Asaph Hall who discovered two moons, Phobos and Deimos. Please feel free to read one of my older posts:
