Russell E. Hutchinson ’39

Russell E. Hutchinson ’39, on May 11, 2002, in Hillsboro, Oregon. Russell, a biology major, noted that daily interactions at Reed with students across academic disciplines positively influenced his life. In 1943 he received an MD from the University of Oregon, married Norma Howell, and had a son and a daughter. He chaired the Hillsboro Union High School board in 1959, was president of the Washington County Medical Society in 1962, and served on the board of trustees for the Western Conservative Baptist Seminary in 1973. In 1978 he chaired the board of trustees at the Tuality Community Hospital, Hillsboro, and was chief of staff for the hospital in 1982. He retired from active medical practice in 1987 and became the medical director of the Physicians Association at Forest Grove Hospital, and later the medical adviser for Tuality Healthcare Home Health.
