Then and Now: The Door Bell
Drew explains about Gallaudet University Archives and its role in preserving Deaf History and he starts a story about the doorbell. Drew shows the old doorbell that is located in College Hall. If someone uses the old doorbell to call a person, all people in the building would come out due to loud noise and vibration. To show what does a modern doorbell looks like now, Drew takes us to the dorm. The modern doorbell is simple and use a light to alert deaf people that someone is at the door.
