Turns out Cogswell ended up, somehow, teaching at Keystone College, in Factoryville, PA, where I worked in the late 90s. Cogswell was dead by then, but the library had a couple volumes of his short stories, donated by his wife. A co-worker, who was a former student, told me how Cogswell, in his 70s, was often late for class, and would arrive noisily on a motorcycle, and stride into the classroom sporting a black leather jacket and scarf.

Rock on, Ted! I'm so sorry I missed you by 10 years....
