Robert Dennis Ernst ’46

Robert Dennis Ernst ’46, October 4, 1996, in San Francisco, California. Robert received a BA from Reed in political science, and enrolled in a master's program at the University of Minnesota. Muriel Reichart Wyatt ’46, who provided the details for this memorial, was secretary on a project in the political science department—a Rockefeller grant to study intergovernmental relations (1946–49)—that involved Robert and her husband, Laurence R. Wyatt ’43. Following that time, the Wyatts went east and Robert went west. " . . . to our regret, we never heard from him again." Muriel reports that Robert disappeared into the wilds of California in 1949 or 1950.

Appeared in Reed magazine: February 2007
