Reed College: Atheism, Communism, Free Love

Reed College's unofficial logo.  I should point out that this is a joke that dates from the 1920s, by which Reed's reputation was firmly established.  I'm thinking of putting on my laptop for the benefit of all the shaved-sideburn Methodists at Seattle Pacific University.

I should add that it is a bit misleading.  Marxism is not really communism per se, and there were a lot of agnostics. As for Free Love, it distinctly lacked the full measure of what that might imply.
