Retirement: Stephen Reid

From Louann Reid, on behalf of current and former English department faculty and staff:

Professor Steve Reid will retire at the end of Spring semester. The following summary of his career only begins to indicate why we will feel his absence so sharply. Although he will continue for a time as Placement Director, he will not be among us as much as he has been.

Steve Reid has taught at CSU for 40 years. Having received his PhD from the University of Kansas in 1972, he started in the CSU English department that fall. Over the years he has been the director of composition five different times, has been the long-time instructor of the GTA teaching course, and has been a key member on all of the major department committees. He is the author of the best-selling Prentice-Hall Guide for Writers, now in its 10th edition, remarkable longevity for a textbook. He is also the author of several other textbooks, readers, and numerous journal articles. Since 1978, he has been the director of the CO150 placement exam.

Steve has no shortage of interests to pursue in retirement. He has long been known by colleagues as an adventurer and athlete. An avid fly fisherman, he’s made annual trips to Alaska for at least the last 15 years. In transitional retirement, he has added Tierra del Fuego as a favored locale.

Steve is also a cyclist. For many years he rode in Ride the Rockies. One of those years Steve won the grand prize, which a colleague described as “a phenomenally expensive and outstandingly beautiful bicycle.” No wonder. It was platinum.

Steve and his wife Anne love traveling. They annually spend spring break in Florida, usually on Sanibel Island. And they’ve traveled extensively in Europe – France, Italy, and Germany.

Colleague and friend Kate Kiefer writes, “When I think about Steve, I can’t help but remember one of the most moving literary tributes I’ve ever read (by Anthony Trollope): ‘The author now leaves him in the hands of his readers: not as a hero, not as a man to be admired and talked of, not as a man who should be toasted at public dinners and spoken of with conventional absurdity as a perfect divine, but as a good man, without guile, believing humbly in the religion which he has striven to teach, and guided by the precepts which he has striven to learn.’ If I substitute students for readers and rhetoric for religion, this picture captures Steve.”

Steve, we will miss you, and we wish you all the best.
