Sheldon Kaplan was suspended from the University of Minnesota in 1935, despite being an outstanding student, because he missed two military drill classes. He was reinstated by President Coffman. He became a symbol of how pointless required military classes were in the Minnesota Daily.
Kaplan went onto a career in law in Minnesota.
