Prof. Frederick Tabbutt [chemistry ’57–71]

Professor Tabbutt was born in Philadelphia and grew up in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. After graduating from Haverford College, he earned his doctorate in chemistry from Harvard University and came to Reed in 1957. “A hell of a nice guy,” says Bill Gilbreath ’58. After Reed, Tabbutt went on to Evergreen State College, where he was a strong proponent of collaborative interdisciplinary teaching and learning. He authored various articles for chemistry journals and also filled temporary teaching and research positions in England and at Carleton College. His wife, Betty, and children, Sarah, Ken, Mark, and Joanna, survive him.
