Elizabeth Morris loved the English language—its word, grammar, and structure every bit as much as its power to paint pictures, tell stories, communicate ideas. A devoted teacher and scholar herself, she believed that one of the most important challenges the university faced was not just to train teachers but to educate them in the disciplines they would be taking out into the schools of Wisconsin. In particular she wanted to know that those who taught the language she loved shared both her passion and her expertise, and to that end she directed her efforts for twenty-four years in the UW-Eau Claire Department of English.
