A picture of Barbara Reid Dudman

Barbara Reid Dudman ’60, April 4, 2011, in Portland. Barbara came to Reed from Huntington High School in California, where she had graduated with honors. At Reed, majoring in mathematics, she met Jack Dudman ’42 [mathematics and dean of students 1953-85]; they married in 1958 and were together until his death in 2008. She spent a year in southern Mexico on a Russell Sage Foundation Grant in 1961, and earned an MA from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1962. Their only child, a son, Joseph, was born two years later. In 1966–69, Barbara was an instructor in mathematics at Reed, and she taught mathematics at Catlin Gabel School, Parkrose Middle School, and Clackamas High School. The family hiked and camped and greatly enjoyed travels throughout western U.S. and in Europe. Survivors include Joseph, and Barbara's brother and sister.
