Elwood Murray: Innovator, Integrator, Educator
A case study of Professor Elwood Murray was undertaken to reveal his impact both on his students and on the curriculum at the University of Denver. Interviews were conducted with Dr. Murray as well as with many of his former students and colleagues. Questionnaires were distributed and results compiled, catalogs from the Denver library were reviewed, and Murray's personal files were examined. Dr. Murray is seen to be an innovator who pioneered in the application of social science techniques to the speech classroom, and a man of vision who left a lasting impression on his students.
