In his March 2015 interview with Harv Thompson, Maryo Gard Ewell, and Karen Goeschko, Marshall Cook chronicles the events that led him to the University of Wisconsin-Extension and his work for Extension's writing programs. He discussed growing up in California during the 1940s and 50s, early influences on his writing, and the reasons he and his wife decided to move to the Midwest. He also detailed his recollections of a number of key figures in the arts programs of UW-Extension, including Robert Gard, Harv Thompson, and Emily Auerbach. This interview was conducted in association with the Robert Gard Wisconsin Idea Foundation and the Wisconsin Arts Council for inclusion into the UW-Madison Oral History Program.
