Abstract:

The William Lawrence Cofell collection consists of an audiocassette and transcript of an oral history interview conducted between Cofell and Gregory A. Page during the fall of 1989. Cofell had spent his career educating students, 1950-1989. He spent three years in the Melrose, Minnesota school system and the remainder of his career at St. Johns University in Collegeville, Minnesota. In the interview, Cofell briefly discussed his experiences as a high school teacher but focused on his experiences teaching at the University level.
