David Rhys Williams ’44

David Rhys Williams ’44, January 16, 2004, in Portland. David attended Reed for a year, and completed his undergraduate education at Stanford University before entering law school at the University of Oregon. His schooling was interrupted by service in the U.S. Army in Italy in World War II. He was decorated for valor in combat. After the war, he resumed his education and developed a career as an attorney. David's mountain training for military service served as an incentive to be a recreational skier, and he competed for downhill and jumping events. He also represented the U.S. in Gordon Cup Senior tennis doubles events. Other interests included singing in the Bohemians men’s choir, coaching little league, and playing competitive bridge. He is survived by his wife, Donna, his son and daughter, four grandchildren, and a sister.

Appeared in Reed magazine: August 2004
