Bill Bidwell Memorial

Bill Bidwell, longtime Butler instructor, knew what the people wanted. As a reporter from the age of 12, Bill never hesitated to tell a story with excellence, accuracy, and expertise. Bill lived all of his 66 years in El Dorado. Thirty-two of those years he taught English and Mass Communications at Butler. He always shared his love for journalism and the arts with everyone he met. His true feeling about his profession could best be seen when Bill had the attention of his class. His love for journalism, the college, and teaching were always present, in everything he did.
