Linda Cudlin ’63

Linda Cudlin ’63, June 29, 2013, in Santa Rosa, California. Linda entered Reed at age 16 on a scholarship and earned a BA in history while working full time as an assistant to Mary McCabe [1955–78] in the Commons. After Reed, Linda worked for State Farm Insurance in California for 35 years. Reed was the perfect place for her, she said. She chose it over Stanford, where her parents intended that she study. To the end of her life, she applauded Reed’s rigorous academic program and was generous in her financial support of the college. She also was proud to have concealed the Doyle Owl in her laundry basket for six months. Linda was predeceased by her parents; brother; and her life companion, Elizabeth McPherson.

Appeared in Reed magazine: March 2014
