It is this steadfast commitment throughout his life, and his reputation as a man of character, that led the founders of Sutherland Institute to choose George Sutherland as our organization’s namesake.
During the month of October, we are partnering with Zions Bank to commemorate the life and legacy of George Sutherland. Utahns will hear a series of short stories on KSL Radio that highlight different aspects of Sutherland’s life and public service. In addition, this page will feature a new collection of blogs, essays and multimedia content profiling this important historical figure.
From his early life in Utah overcoming poverty and getting an education, to his service in the Utah Senate, U.S. House and U.S. Senate, to his legacy of principled decisions on the Supreme Court, Sutherland’s life exemplifies the Utah spirit of hard work and commitment to principle – and the American ideals enshrined in our Constitution.
Join us and Zions Bank throughout October in commemorating the notable impact of George Sutherland and the principles he stood for.
Special thanks to the contribution and partnership of
