BEBIAN, Roch Ambroise Auguste, educator, born on the island of Guadeloupe in 1786; died there in 1834. lie was the son of a merchant, and was encouraged to devote himself to the instruction of the deaf and dumb by his godfather, the Abbe Sicard, under whose direction he qualified himself for the task. He published "Essai sur les sourdmuets et sur le langage nature1" (1817), and afterward became a professor in the royal institution for deaf-mutes. His zeal for reform excited much jealousy, and, in 1825, he was compelled to resign his professorship and return to his native island. His other publications were "Mimogra-phie, ou Essai d'ecriture mimique" (Paris, 1822)" " Manuel d'enseignement pratique" (1827) ; and "Eloge historique de l'abb6 de l'Epee."
