Lloyd Gouvy Lyman ’48

Lloyd Gouvy Lyman ’48, November 15, 2010, in Bandon, Oregon, from cancer. Ned interrupted his studies at Reed to join the U.S. Navy and serve on the U.S.S. Todd in the Pacific Theatre during World War II. At the end of the war, he returned to the college and earned a BA in history. He then studied library science at the University of California, Berkeley. His love of books and writing led to a professional life in publishing, beginning at the university press at Berkeley. He also worked at LSU Press in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and was director of the university press at Texas A&M. In retirement, he settled in Bandon and helped to develop a new library, which contains numerous volumes from his personal library.
