Theron Friedman ’66

Terry grew up in Detroit. A math major, he came to Reed for his last two years of undergraduate work and wrote a thesis, “The Natural Numbers in Set Theory.” He went on to graduate school at the University of Oregon.

For the most part, he worked in computer-related support of planetary space research and at the University of Arizona as a computer specialist. He also had a passion for folk dancing. Molly Stafford ’66 remembers that his middle name was A-Z because his parents wanted him to have a middle initial, but wanted him to choose his own. He thought A-Z was perfect. His wife, Sara Heitshu, and a faithful beagle survive Terry.

Appeared in Reed magazine: June 2016
