The Montana Association of the Deaf (MAD) was founded in Boulder, Montana, June 1912 by twenty-four deaf individuals. At first, the purpose of setting up an organization was a social gathering for deaf people who were isolated in their hometowns near and far and they needed communication. Some years later MAD became involved in advocacy for deaf people legally and economically.
