SLUG Style: Gerda Saunders


Gerda Saunders is a retired educator and was formerly Associate Director of the Gender Studies program at the University of Utah. In 2010, she was diagnosed with cerebral microvascular disease, a precursor of dementia. She recently published a memoir of her experience entitled Memory’s Last Breath: Field Notes on My Dementia.

Every month, SLUG Style features distinct and unique members of the community and asks them why they do what they do. Exploring more than just clothing, SLUG Style is an attempt to feature the people who give Salt Lake City flavor through personality and panache.
