Robert Rutford, UTD president, Antarctic explorer and badass

Recommended Posts

The great Bob Rutford, geologist, Antarctic explorer and former president of UT-Dallas from 1982-1994 (and a big part of it becoming a full-fledged four-year university), died a few weeks ago. I had the opportunity to get to know him late in his life, and found him to be fascinating - and a hell of a funny storyteller. 

This is a wonderful short film produced by Birkenstock, highlighting his Antarctic explorations. The interview segments were filmed at his home in Richardson shortly before his death.
