Sutter house, 502 William St.

Dr. Sutter was born in Gadshill in 1897 and graduated from Stratford Collegiate Institute. He wanted to be a dentist, but his ambition was delayed by service in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps during the First World War.

Sutter served in France and Belgium with the 11th and 13th Field Ambulances and was discharged in 1919 with the rank of sergeant. He graduated from the Royal College of Dental Surgeons at the University of Toronto in 1923 and ran a practice in Stratford until illness forced him to retire in 1950.

Dr. Sutter was a charter and life member of the Stratford Lions Club, and its second president. He was also past master of Stratford Lodge No. 332, A. F. and A. M., and a past chancellor commander of Hamlet Lodge No. 42, Knights of Pythias. He chaired the parks board in 1937-1938 and was on that board for 20 years. He was interested in hockey, baseball and lacrosse, but especially delighted in hunting and fishing in northern Ontario. Source: Streets of Stratford, 2004.
