Charles E. Krutch
—1887-1981 —Krutch Park is the legacy of Charles Krutch, the last survivor of an eccentric and talented family. When they first arrived in Knoxville in the 1850's the proud German clan spelled their name Krütsch (the name is pronounced Krootch). Several of the Knoxville-raised Krutches were prominent in the arts. Oskar Krutch became a classical pianist. His sister, Lou Krutch, was a music teacher and idiosyncratic pants-wearing feminist who shocked some by taking long solo hiking trips in the Smoky Mountains which were then wild, remote, and little known to Knoxvillians. Her brother, Charles Christopher Krutch, also a hiker and camper, was a church organist but better known as an accomplished painter of the Impressionist school; many of his canvases were landscapes of the Smokies.
