Associations and institutions often have short memories. As a consequence, early pioneers and their contributions, which help to form the substrate of our profession in terms of teaching, clinical practice, and research, are lost to the present and future generations. To know of and to understand the contributions of professional progenitors makes easier an understanding and appreciation of the present status of our professional endeavors.
This article brings into focus the efforts of one pioneer, Marie K. Mason, who worked long and hard to make a difference in the lives of children, university students, and other adults with hearing loss during the 1930s and 1940s. Although provision of clinical assistance during this time was for the most part anecdotal, Mason’s was not, as she used clinical data and awakened an interest in the objective study of the visual-hearing process. Her work as a rehabilitative audiologist was noted not only in Ohio but across the country as well.
