Edward A. Howe AMP ’44

Edward A. Howe AMP ’44, February 11, 2008, in Minnesota. Ed Howe attended Reed for a year in the U.S. Army Premeteorology Program. He was an exceptional football player in high school and at the University of Minnesota, but after serving in World War II, he chose a career in education over professional football. He earned a PhD in political science from the University of Minnesota in 1960, and taught at the university. He also worked for the City of Minneapolis in budget analysis, and city planning and development. Howe was active in the Democratic Party and as a member of the Minnesota Citizen's League—a think tank concerned with state and local policy issues. Survivors include his wife, Jean.

Appeared in Reed magazine: August 2008
