Alison Reed, an Oxy ECLS major, Phi Beta Kappa, and now PhD Candidate for English at the University of California at Santa Barbara, was a student staffer and Mellon Library Recruitment Intern in Special Collections. She was so taken by the bookplate Ned Guymon designed for his Mystery and Dectective Fiction Collection, that she customized it for her own tattoo. Reed's friend and co-worker in Special Collections, Lara Spade, after seeing the tattoo, said that she plans to do the same.
