R. Guthrie Jarrell

First coming to Tech as a freshman in 1945 and playing basketball for the Bulldogs that year, Dr. R. Guthrie Jarrell graduated from Tech in 1949 and for the rest of his life -- the past 60-plus years -- he has been one of the school’s most loyal, dedicated and giving servants the university has ever known. Specializing in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Jarrell began his amazing medical career while in the Navy and eventually set up his private practice in Monroe, where he served for over 50 years (and delivered over 15,000 babies), All the while, Dr. Jarrell was “Mr. Tech” in the Monroe area and has staunchly supported -- both through his time and financially -- the University along with Bulldog and Lady Techster athletics. He has been President of the Tech Alumni Association, was chosen Alumnus of the Year in 1975, and is a member of the university’s Hall of Distinguished Alumni. He has always played a major role in funding improvements for athletic facilities at the university and he has quite likely seen more Tech athletic events than any individual in history.
