About the Author

William Cunningham is a professor of cell biology at the University of Minnesota. He received a B.S. degree in biology from Southwest Texas State College in 1959 and a Ph.D. in botany from the University of Texas in 1963. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at both the Wenner Gren Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, and Purdue University. He holds memberships in many biological/educational societies and organizations and has received numerous honors and awards. Dr. Cunningham has devoted himself to education and teaching development at the undergraduate level in biology. He began his educational career in structural biology but for the last 10-15 years has concentrated on environmental science, teaching courses such as Social Uses of Biology; Garbage, Government, and the Globe; Environmental Ethics; and Conservation History. Within the past four years, he has received both of the two highest teaching honors that the University of Minnesota bestows — The Distinguished Teaching Award and a $15,000 Amoco Alumni Award. This year he is serving as Faculty Mentor for younger faculty at the university, sharing the knowledge and teaching skills that he has gained during his distinguished career.
