Gordon Kato ’86

A picture of Gordon Kato

Gordon Eiji Kato ’86, October 31, 2006, in Bloomington, Indiana, from a myocardial infarction. Gordon attended Reed two years before enrolling at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where he earned a BA, with honors, in experimental psychology. In 1987, he received an MEd from Harvard. During the next decade, he worked in the publishing industry in New York City in editing, before creating his own literary and talent agency (1994). His work as a literary agent helped create a new Asian-American literary movement; the work brought him recognition by Avenue Asian magazine as one of the 500 most influential Asian Americans. He was also a volunteer for many Asian American organizations. Following the events of September 11, 2001, in the U.S., Gordon returned to the field of psychology as a PhD candidate at the University of Indiana, Bloomington. Survivors include his mother and sister.

Appeared in Reed magazine: February 2007
