In Memory of Don Tuttle

Our good friend Don Tuttle passed away on May 15 at the age of 81. We were very sad to learn the news, and we extend our heartfelt condolences to his wife, Andrea, and his family and friends. 

Don and Andrea Tuttle are longtime friends and supporters of the Schatz Energy Research Center and Humboldt State University. Andrea is a founding member of the Schatz Center’s Advisory Board, and they jointly established the Donald and Andrea Tuttle Fellowship for Clean Energy Studies in 2017. This fellowship provides support to graduate students in the Energy Technology and Policy (ETaP) and Environmental Resources Engineering options of the Environmental Systems graduate program.

Don was a kind, thoughtful, and wise person. Over his long career, his persistent, careful, and historically-minded approach to environmental protection in relation to regional economic and infrastructure development has made a real and lasting difference in our community. We are grateful for his good works and leadership, and we will miss him very much.
