About Our Donors

Kenneth Peva McCutchan 1913-2002

Born April 21, 1913, Ken McCutchan lived the first 78 years of his life on Indiana property purchased by his ancestors from the U.S. government in 1835. After proudly served his country during World War II, McCutchan went into radio broadcasting and was the first voice of Evansville’s station WIKY.

His love of historical story-telling led him to write several books on Vanderburgh County and southern Indiana. He was a generous benefactor to many Evansville organizations which shared his love of history, art and his sense of community.

The construction of the McCutchan Art Center largely comes from a generous gift from Kenneth P. McCutchan. He painted for pleasure and collected the works of Indiana artists. During his lifetime he gave a large portion of his collection to USI.
