Irene Gutterman (PHOT 1937) was born in New Mexico on April 2, 1912. Working as the school photographer to help pay tuition, she documented Art Center’s faculty, students, student work and classes across all academic departments. A number of her images appeared in the 1937 catalog. In the early 2000s, Vermeers donated over 200 of her original prints and negatives to Art Center. Her collection contains some of the earliest photographs we have in our College Archives and serves as an excellent document of the 7th Street era. In addition, she donated her original camera and tripod that she used as a student. It was at Art Center that Irene met her future husband, Art Vermeers, who studied industrial design. They married after graduating, and went on to start a family. Irene Vermeers died at the age of 96 on October 9, 2008 in La Jolla, California. (Excerpted from the Dotted Line blog, March 7, 2012:
