The John Tracy Clinic was founded in 1942 by Louise Tracy, wife of actor Spencer Tracy. In 1925, the couple's son John was diagnosed with profound hearing loss at 10 months old. Mrs. Tracy worked with him and taught him lip-reading and encouraged him to learn how to speak. She opposed sign language. The clinic established programs to educate and offer emotional support to parents and their preschool deaf youngsters, free of charge. The clinic has locations in Los Angeles and Long Beach, and offers online services to families. Photograph caption dated April 24, 1965 reads "Anticipating 19th annual Tennis and Crumpet Tournament, to be held in May, are, from left, the Bruce Throckmortons and the Donald Allens, all of Encino. The event will benefit John Tracy Clinic."
