Myfanwy Chapman was the chair and program coordinator for the Minneapolis Public School's Speech Department, after having served for many years as a speech pathologist in the special education department of the Minneapolis Schools (1926-1957).

She received her BS Degree in 1937 and MS in 1945, both from the University of Minnesota. She spent summers from 1937 to 1951 as supervisor of the speech pathology clinic and the clinic for stutterers at the University of Minnesota.
