Robert Madison Maxwell ’50

A picture of Robert Maxwell

Robert Madison Maxwell ’50, June 23, 2013, in Lakewood, Tacoma. The year before Robert earned his BA from Reed in chemistry, he married Mary L. Weible ’49, MAT ’67. Mary traveled by ship to Japan to be with him during his service as a flight engineer with the air force during the Korean War. Robert also earned a BA in education at the University of Puget Sound and an MA in counseling and psychology from South Dakota State University. He and Mary taught in the Clover Park School District in Tacoma and truly enjoyed their retirement that began in 1989. Following Mary’s death in 2009, Robert revisited Reed with his daughter and son and was delighted to return to the setting of so many happy memories.

Appeared in Reed magazine: March 2014
