Mildred Templin was born in 1913 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She grew up helping her parents in the drug store that they lived above. Templin developed an early interest in speech and audiology and decided to continue her education at the University of Wisconsin, one of the three best schools at the time for the still new field of speech pathology. She received her BA in speech at Wisconsin in 1936, and received her Masters in speech pathology there as well. Interestingly, she worked in the speech lab at Purdue while earning her master's degree. She earned her PhD in child development from the University of Minnesota, while also taking classes at Columbia. Throughout her career as a graduate student, Templin also worked in various schools and labs, gaining practical experience that would ultimately shape the direction of her research. When Templin retired in 1976, she received an honorary doctorate in recognition of her contributions to the development of the speech lab there, her teaching and research, and contributions to the field of speech pathology. In 2007, the University of Minnesota named her one of the 100 most significant contributors to the university's efforts in the previous 100 years. Her research, publications, and teaching are considered seminal in the field of speech pathology.
