One of the highlights of this year's Renn Fayre celebration was the return of the human chess game.

The City Club of Portland met in the Kaul Auditorium for its weekly public affairs forum on April 24, as a part of the week-long dedication of the Gray Campus Center. Many members of both the Portland and Reed communities attended the luncheon. From left, Fran Storrs, City Club president; Reed president Steven Koblik and president emeritus Paul Bragdon, who discussed the future of higher education; and City Club board member Carolyn Bullard '64. A complete story on the Gray Campus Center dedication was featured in the most recent issue of the Campaign for Reed College newsletter.


From left: President Koblik discussed an array of topics with Portland city commissioner Charlie Hales, assistant to the commissioner Susan Des Camp, college vice president/treasurer Ed McFarlane, and Reed's director of public affairs Harriet Watson (not pictured) during Hales's lunchtime visit to campus this spring. The commissioner has initiated a series of conversations with area schools to explore ways in which the city and the Portland higher education community can work together more effectively.


Reed students organized a silent demonstration on April 17 to coincide with the ribbon-cutting of the Gray Campus Center. The students protested Reed's lack of diversity.
