In this article about mentoring I simply try to tell a story about what transpired involving me and our doctoral students at the University of Minnesota from the early 1970s until the early 1990s. I try to offer a few guiding principles on mentoring doctoral students, but I must set forth a disclaimer that my observations are based on a situation that was very environmentally specific and thus any generalizations should be taken in context of the time and place.
