One of the first modern schools in Iran, the American Memorial School was established in Tabriz in 1881 by the American Presbyterian Mission. In the spring of 1909, during the Iranian Constitutional revolution, one of the young American teachers of the school, Howard Baskerville, was killed in a battle against the monarchists. After World War II, the school was renamed Parvin High School by Iran’s Ministry of Education.
“Method of Teaching the Deaf” by Mirza Jabbar Asgarzadeh, known as Jabbar Baghcheban, was the first book for speech training for Iranian deaf students.
Baghcheban was born to Iranian parents in Yerevan, Armenia, in 1884. After World War I, he moved to Iran’s East Azerbaijan province and started work as a teacher.
