Stewart Reuter (1934 – 2012) was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1934, received his B.A. from Ohio Wesleyan, and earned his M.D. at Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. Later he received a J.D. with honors at the University of San Francisco Law School in California, while becoming a world-renowned radiologist and chairman of the Radiology Department of the University Health Science Center, where he built the research laboratory that saw the birth of the stent.

His doodling during “less than stimulating lectures”, led him to transferring those images into plywood constructions with great complexity and depth, upon retiring.

This has resulted in exhibitions not only in the Health Science Center and Gallery Nord in San Antonio, but in the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art in Dallas as well.
