Biographical Information:

Professor Alpheus Sanford was graduated from the University of Maine with a B.A. degree in 1947. While attending the University, he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and to Phi Kappa Phi. He received his M.Ed from Boston University in 1954 and Ed.D. in 1959. His career included employment as an underwriter at the home office of New England Mutual Life Insurance Co. in Boston where he continued his education at Boston University.  The call to teach sent him to high school positions in counseling and guidance from 1950 to 1954 in Houlton, ME and Concord, MA.  He then became Director of Guidance for the state of Vermont from 1954-1958.  He was appointed to the College of Education faculty (counselor education) in 1958 at the University of Maine and retired from there as Professor Emeritus in 1991.
