A conversation with Joe Hutchinson

The son of Fred Hutchinson shares his memories of his dad and his uncle, Bill, who founded the cancer center in his brother's memory

Oct. 23, 2014

The first thing I noticed about Joe Hutchinson is how much he looks like his father. He’s got the same rough-cut facial features and powerful jaw his father wore to every baseball game he played or managed.

However, the thing I learned about Joe when he recently visited the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center campus is how much of an impact his Uncle Bill Hutchinson, founder of the Fred Hutch, had on Joe.

Watch his video interview with my colleague, Linda Dahlstrom, to see what Joe says about the death of his father and his uncle’s response to that tragedy.

Joe Hutchinson shares his memory of his dad, Fred, the baseball player and namesake of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
