Dr. Gutch’s Chair

Gutch Chair

Betty Gutch recently donated her late husband’s chair to the Wegner Center. Come check out this wonderful reminder of Dr. Charley Gutch.

  Dr. Charley Gutch was Associate Dean for the School of Medicine at the University of South Dakota and awarded the chair upon his retirement in 1988. Charley did not let this chair sit idle, as it seemed to be his chair of choice in their home. Charley served as a volunteer at the Wegner Center for many years. He was game to perform any task asked of him in his volunteer work, but his medical knowledge became a gift with his contribution of summaries for many medical library videos became a part of the library record.

Charley and Betty created a strong partnership and have been generous contributors to the Wegner Center.This partnership with the Wegner Center led to the digitization of WWII letters written by Dr. Gutch during the war years to the Digital Library of South Dakota.  Click Here to read and explore these amazing pieces of history. 

 Sadly, Betty Gutch passed away on August 21, 2014.
