Winifred Weter: The First Woman on SPU’s Faculty to Hold a Doctoral Degree
Many readers wrote in to identify Winifred Weter, who not only served Seattle Pacific as professor of classical languages for 40 years (1935– 75), but also became the first woman to coach a Seattle Pacific athletic team — basketball.
Robert Morris ’52 calls Weter “absolutely one of my all-time favorite teachers, and a person who so inspired me that I went on to graduate school and taught New Testament Greek for many years.”
“I took Latin from her and remember how she used to have a big smile while describing gory Roman battles,” recalls Janette Schultz Anderson ’55. “Latin, I understood. The smile? I never had the nerve to ask!”
Congratulations to our contest winner, Thomas Gaines ’74!
