Special Notes Donald L. Wolfarth held a teaching position in the speech department at UW-Eau Claire from 1967 until his retirement in 1988. He was active as a judge in the various high school and college debate and forensics events held on campus. Before working the speech department, he studied with the American Institute of Parliamentarian. In 1969, he created the parliamentary procedure course. Professor Wolfarth's department chair said of him: 'Don was outstanding as a scholar, teacher and colleague. But he was extraordinary as a friend.'
