Hearing. First name sometimes Anglicized in sources as Frederick. A disciple of Samuel Heinicke, he began teaching at the Heinicke Institute in Weissenfels, Germany. He was even more rigorously oral than Heinicke had been, and since he trained other teachers of the deaf, he had a strong influence on the promotion of oral education of the deaf throughout Europe and eventually in North America as well.
