Roland A. Dexter AMP ’44

Roland A. Dexter AMP ’44, April 12, 2009, in Sarasota, Florida. Roland attended Reed in 1944 in the premeteorology program and again as a transfer student in 1946–47. He earned a BA in science from Washington State University. β€œThe two years I spent at Reed exposed me to extraordinary teachers,” he wrote. During World War II, he was an officer in radar technology in the Army Air Corps. Roland had a lifetime passion for law. He earned a JD from Northeastern University and was an accomplished patent attorney, practicing in New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Texas, and Florida. His extensive overseas travels inspired him to work as an international patent attorney well into his 80s. Survivors include two daughters and four grandchildren.
