So have you heard about this book called Comrades of the Quest by John Sheehy ‘82? It is a massive and inspiring oral history of Reed College. Sheehy collected interviews from over 1,400 past presidents, professors, alumni and trustees (and staff?). All of these stories are also searchable and archived for the select few who can remember their IRIS passwords right over here. The tome is an impressive wallop of Olde Reed (the youngest alum = ‘08). The Switchboard sent the book over to Alex Cherin ‘12 (who is, PS, looking for a job or opportunity in advertising). Alex volunteered to excerpt some of his favorite stories and respond to them. Kind of a little New Reed/Olde Reed conversation. Alex will be posting weekly here using the “comrades of the quest" tag. Hit it, Alex.
