“But, that your lack of hearing bars not your active mind/ From absorbing all true knowledge, and giving out in kind.” - Dorothy Beam
Every Deaf person in Canada has benefited in some way from Dorothy Beam's dedicated efforts on their behalf. Dorothy was a past Deaf OntarioPresident, and a CHS Board Member. 
This year during CHS's Ontario Interpreting Services 35th anniversary celebrations, a room was named in honour of Dorothy.
Deaf community advocate, mother, poet. Born on March 3, 1918, in Ottawa; died on April 1, 2015, in Ottawa, of natural causes, aged 97.
