William K. Dailey ’61

William Dailey ’61, of Pick’s Disease, November 24, 2001, in Portland. He earned a master’s degree from Harvard Business School in 1963. He was managing director of Viti Timber Mill in Fiji and president of Hawaii Vision in Hawaii before moving back to Portland, where he was president of Western Photo Mount from 1987 until 1999, when his illness forced him to retire. His disease, a neurological disorder, slowly erased his language abilities, and he became adept as using a talking laptop computer, which he used to present speeches about the illness. Survivors include his wife of 45 years, two sons, two daughters, and nine grandchildren. The family suggests remembrances to Reed College.
