Trustee Emeritus Ted Cutler ’51 LHD ‘07, whose vision, leadership, and generosity helped transform Emerson College and its neighborhood into a vibrant center of arts innovation, died Thursday, March 30. He was 86.
“Ted will be remembered as a generous benefactor of many worthy causes and charities and, as a proud Emerson alum, the College held a special place in his heart,” Emerson Board of Trustees Chair Jeff Greenhawt ’68 said. “Ted and his late wife Joan donated many significant gifts over the years that will continue to be important to Emerson.”
Cutler served on Emerson’s Board of Trustees from 1998 to 2008, chairing the board from 2001-2007. In 2007, the College awarded him an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree.
