This chapter describes Coffin's life in the late 1960s and early 1970s, which was structured by the rhythms of the church and academic calendar. He preached most Sundays during the school year, gave baccalaureate and commencement prayers, counseled students on personal and draft-related issues, performed weddings and funerals for members of the Yale community, wrote recommendations for students, played tennis and squash, and took Augusts off to spend with his new family on Marsh Island, Maine. He traveled a great deal, driving all over New England after church on Sundays as well as during the week, and flying to the Midwest, California, and the South. He collected honoraria to supplement his salary, for his legal bills, and to help support his larger family once Harriet moved to New Haven with her children.
