Dwight Thornton Reed died on May 29 at Bethesda Hospital, St. Paul, Minn. He had made his home at 1221 Rice St., St. Paul. Dwight was born March 28, 1888, the son of Samuel Arthur and Emma (Scott) Reed of Portsmouth, N. H. He entered Dartmouth from the Portsmouth High School and remained through junior year. After working for the Maine Highway Commission, he went to St. Paul and in 1913 received his A.B. degree from the University of Minnesota.
A teaching position in the Philippines was alluring but engineering and construction exercised the greater appeal and he started work with the St. Paul Department of Public Works. Thirty-seven years' service here gave him much satisfaction and established a tine reputation as a construction engineer.
Dwight was married in 1914 to Ora L. Wood, who survives him as do two sons, Dwight Jr., Minnesota football star and head coach of Lincoln "U" in Missouri, and Samuel, a Veteran's Administration staff member.
Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Dentil A. Catty, rector of St. Phillips' Episcopal Church, and burial was at Roselawn Cemetery. The Class of 1909 has lost one of its loyal and dependable members and extends to Ids widow and sons its heartfelt sympathy in our mutual loss.
