(July 25, 2012) -- UTSA supporter Stewart R. Reuter, M.D., J.D. and professor emeritus in the Department of Radiology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, died peacefully at his home in Santa Fe, N.M. on July 8, 2012, surrounded by family.

Reuter had a distinguished career as a radiologist, legal scholar and educator.As the author of more than 100 peer-reviewed articles, his research was recognized by national and international scientific organizations around the world.

For more than 25 years, Stewart and Marianne Reuter have supported the UTSA College of Liberal and Fine Arts across a variety of disciplines. Their involvement and support has included English, Modern Languages and Literatures, and most recently the Department of Art and Art History and the Department of Music, where they have established endowed scholarships. The Stewart R. and Marianne C. Reuter Endowed Scholarship in Vocal Performance provides support for undergraduate music majors with a concentration in vocal performance that is a direct reflection of Reuter's great love for opera.

"Stewart was a person of enormous scope, deeply versed in medicine, law and the humanities," said Daniel Gelo, dean of the UTSA College of Liberal and Fine Arts. "Marianne and Stewart's bountiful support of literature, art and music at UTSA is an apt extension of their shared enthusiasm and mastery of these subjects."

Reuter was a pioneer in the field of cardiovascular radiology and was the first to describe the angiographic abnormalities in several disease processes in the abdomen. He was a founding member and fellow of the Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology, a fellow of the American College of Legal Medicine and the American Heart Association, and an emeritus fellow of the American College of Radiology. He also was a legal scholar and a member of the Texas Bar. His law review articles have been cited as authoritative resources in legal decisions across the country.

In retirement, Reuter worked as an artist and traveled extensively to museums around the world. His art has been shown at the Gallery Nord in San Antonio and the MADI Museum of Art in Dallas. Reuter once said that his artistic inspiration was his many years of marriage to Marianne, who has a degree in museum management. The Stewart R. and Marianne C. Reuter Endowed Scholarship in Art at UTSA provides support for graduate students pursing M.F.A. degrees in fine arts studio disciplines including ceramics, new media, painting and drawing, photography, printmaking and sculpture.

"Their gifts have set many students on the path to success and fulfillment," said Gelo.

A memorial will be at the Gallery Nord, San Antonio, Texas, at 4 p.m., Aug. 28.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
