    Hans Reuter
    • Taught from 1920-1956
    • Department: Physical Education (courses included History of Physical Education, Body Building, Archery, Track and Field, Field Soccer, Folk Dancing, Curling, Wrestling, etc.)
    • Hans Reuter was a beast of a professor. He expected perfection out of every one of his students, and never made them doing something he couldn’t do (even when he taught emeritus in his 70’s and 80’s!)
    • Invented a Back Quiver for archers (so one could shoot while sitting down), a Pendulum timer that he used in classes, and a Moveable Manikin!
    • After retiring, he and his wife stayed in La Crosse, because Reuter wanted to be able to visit campus once a year, and took up painting
    • Thanks to his work, along with Walter Wittich and Emma Lou Wilder, La Crosse Normal/State Teacher’s College was known around the country for it’s Physical Education Department!
