Joann Cockrell Lampman ’45

Joann Cockrell Lampman ’45, May 31, 2009, in Madison, Wisconsin. Jo spent her sophomore year of college at Reed in 1943–44, while her husband, Robert Lampman, completed military duty in the Aleutian Islands. “It was my first real experience away from home (Madison). I was newly married and was the only married student on campus,” she reported. Courses with Lloyd Reynolds [English and art 1929-69] and Victor Chittick [English 1921-48] made a lasting impression on her. She stayed in touch with Victor and Edna Whitman Chittick[music 1931-39] to the end of their lives. Jo's many accomplishments included pastel painting and performing violin in the Madison orchestra. She and her husband, who was a faculty member at Madison, and who died in 1997, had four children, six grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
