description
Dr. Caryl Guthe is a 1957 graduate of Wake Forest University, double majoring in Biology and Mathematics. She went on to attend medical school at Wake Forest, gradating with her Doctorate in 1962. Throughout her time at the University, she was an integral part of creating greater opportunities for women in athletics. Guthe participated in practically every sport offered for women: archery, badminton, basketball, soccer, tennis, and field hockey. In this interview, Dr. Guthe discusses her unique academic path, transferring to the University in her third year. She speaks mainly about intramural athletics and the women's programs offered prior to the Title IX era. Additionally, Dr. Guthe sheds light on her experience in medical school, detailing the bias many professors had against female medical students. Guthe herself was one of the first female graduates of the medical school.
