Georgia-Mae Wilkins Gallivan MALS ’70, March 29, 2010, in Vancouver, Washington. Georgia-Mae earned a BA in history in 1937 and an MA in English in 1942 from Whitman College. She met cartoonist and editor Robert Gallivan when he was stationed with the army in Walla Walla, Washington; they were married for 65 years. Georgia-Mae's study at Reed came mid-career, and she enjoyed the scholarship immensely. She taught for 10 years in Walla Walla, and for 20 years at Clark College, in Vancouver, where she was chair of the humanities division and president of the faculty association. In retirement, she served on the Washington Commission for the Humanities and received the Clark County Award for the Support of the Arts. She served 10 years as a trustee of Clark College, and volunteered for numerous organizations, including Friends of the Columbia Gorge, the ACLU, and Women in Action. In 1996, she was honored with the Woman of Achievement award from the Clark County YMCA for her long career in teaching and her work in the community.
