Gloria M. Hammersly Gray ’45

Gloria Hammersly Gray ’45, September 27, 2004, in Portland. Gloria attended Reed for one year, and worked for the Oregonian and the Oregon Journal as an advertising copywriter. She also wrote educational materials for the Northwest Regional Educational Lab. Her "spunky" approach to community involvement was evidenced over the years by her letters to editors; her work as an advocate on health and housing issues with the Portland County Commission on Aging; and in her work as a representative for abused and neglected children with the Court Appointed Special Advocates program in Metropolitan Portland. She was a member of the Unitarian church, and actively involved in the John Kerry campaign at the time of her death. Survivors include her daughter. Her husband died in 1988.

Appeared in Reed magazine: February 2005
