Dr. Owen Glen Cosgrove received his Bible degree from Abilene Christian College, a master’s degree from Sul Ross, and a Ph.D from the University of North Texas.  While a student at ACC, Cosgrove preached for the Church of Christ in Robert Lee, Texas. He served as minister in several Churches of Christ and also held gospel meetings across the Southwest. Cosgrove is known for authoring several gospel tracts popular among Churches of Christ.

Batsell Barrett Baxter’s interview with President John C. Stevens is now digitized.

This collection contains oral histories made by Owen Cosgrove and others. These histories contain the recollections of influential persons associated with Abilene Christian University. Some of the individuals interviewed include Don H. Morris, John C. Stevens, Garvin V. Beauchamp, and Walter H. Adams. The collection includes interview transcripts and cassette tapes of the interviews.
