Ivy Kellerman Reed--continued
From the flyleaf of her novel "A Messenger to the Gods" (Vantage Press, 1955):
"Ivy Kellerman Reed received her doctorate from the University of Chicago. She also holds the degrees of Master of Arts from Cornell University, Bachelor of Arts from Ohio State University, and Bachelor of Laws from the law college now incorporated in the American University at Washington, D.C. She was a regularly matriculated student (prior to World War 1) in the Royal University of Berlin; and was admitted to the District of Columbia Bar in 1935. At present, Mrs. Reed lives in La Jolla, California.
Her youth was spent in a university atmosphere, as her father was head of the department of botany in Ohio State University. She has been teacher, magazine and government editor, legal researcher, and homemaker. Her husband, a lawyer, now deceased, was for many years executive secretary of the Esperanto Association of North America. Her son, Dr. Erik Kellerman Reed, is supervising archaeologist (and historian) in the National Park Service. In a recent two-month vacation from government work, he joined Thor Heyerdahl (of Kon-Tiki fame) and a third scientist from the University of Oslo in archaeological exploration on the Galapagos Islands."
