The Calligraphy Initiative was founded by Cooley Gallery Director Stephanie Snyder '91 in 2012, as an outgrowth of the Cooley exhibition, Lloyd Reynolds, A Life of Forms in Art (2011), curated by Gay Walker '69 (Special Collections Librarian, Reed College) and Stephanie Snyder, and enriched and elucidated by the educational outreach activities of Gregory MacNaughton '89, Cooley Gallery Education Outreach Coordinator.
The Calligraphy Initiative, including the establishment of the position of Calligraphy Outreach Coordinator, was made possible by a generous gift from a Reed College alumnus, and was stewarded into existence with the support of the Office of the President, the Office of the Dean of Faculty, and the Office of College Relations.
In addition, the following individuals offered invaluable support and wisdom to help guide the study and practice of calligraphy back to Reed College: Inga Dubay, Barbara Getty, John Sheehy '82, Sumner Stone '67, Gary Snyder '51, Georgianna Greenwood '60, Gay Walker '69, Lee Littlewood '68, Robert Palladino, Phyllis Reynolds, Judith Reynolds, Allison Tepper '11, Vice President for College Relations Hugh Porter, Emeritus Dean of Faculty Ellen Stauder, Dean of Faculty Pat McDougal, and Emeritus President Colin Diver.

The mission of the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery is to enhance the academic offerings of Reed College with a diverse range of scholarly exhibitions, lectures, and colloquia in its role as a teaching gallery.
The gallery was established by a generous 1988 gift from Sue and Edward Cooley and John and Betty Gray "in support of the teaching of art history at Reed College, as part of an interdisciplinary educational experience that strengthens the art history component of Reed's distinctive humanities program." Exhibitions are coordinated in collaboration with Reed faculty members and courses, with attention to the needs and interests of the larger Portland and Northwest arts communities. A schedule of three to four exhibitions during the academic year brings to Reed and the Portland community work that would not otherwise be seen in the region
