Robert D. Leggett ’42

Robert D. Leggett ’42, July 21, 1997, in Stockton, California. He earned an MD in 1945 at the University of Oregon Medical School and became an anesthesiologist, practicing in hospitals and in private practice in Wausau, Wisconsin. In 1974, he made a career change, entering a three-year residency program in psychiatry at the Mental Health Institute of Cherokee, Iowa. Upon completion of the residency, he took a position as staff psychiatrist with the San Joaquin County Mental Health Services, Stockton, California. After retiring from full time practice in 1992, he continued to work as a part time medical consultant for the California Social Services Department. He is survived by his wife, four children, and one grandchild. The family suggests that memorial contributions may be made to the Reed College Endowment Fund.
