Michael Reuter was a favorite professor of PE and taught Statistics for the Physical Education program before the Human Physiology Department existed. Also known as a wrestling coach when he came to the University of Oregon in the 70’s. Reuter retired from the University of Oregon in 1984.
Much before going to school on the G.I. bill and then receiving his PhD from the University of Illinois, Reuter served in the military starting in 1942 during WWII.
The 93-year-old former Lt. Colonel received France’s highest honor for soldiers, a Knight of the Legion of Honor in a ceremony held in Eugene on Wednesday. After the war, he was also awarded several military honors, The Bronze Star, Purple Heart and others.

We are pleased to announce the establishment of the Kenneth M. and Kenda H. Singer Endowed Science Librarian fund to support a librarian position and programmatic expenditures in the Allan Price Science Commons and Research Library. This generous gift from Mr. and Mrs. Singer makes the UO Libraries stronger by helping us fund a position dedicated to promoting and enhancing the sciences through library teaching and service. Much of the inspiration for the gift came from the donors’ interactions with Annie Zeidman-Karpinski, whom the Singers came to appreciate as an exceptional librarian.
Annie has been with the University of Oregon since 2002 coming from Los Angeles after graduating from UCLA.
