Charles Emmett Yeater (1861 – July 1943) of Sedalia, Missouri was acting Governor-General of the Philippines from March 5, 1921 to October 14, 1921.
From 1901 to 1935, the governor-general was the chief political executive of the Philippines, when the country was governed by the United States of America.
The Charles E. Yeater Learning Center at State Fair Community College in Sedalia is named for him.
Building History and Current Use:
SFCC's first permanent building, the Charles E. Yeater Learning Center opened in 1976. The building was a result of a $2.5 million dollar gift from the estate of Charles and Elizabeth Yeater. The Yeater Learning Center is home to English, literature, history, math, and social sciences classrooms, including the Testing and Career Center, the Donald C. Proctor Library, and the Student Achievement Center which offers free tutoring, study skills, Adult Education Literacy, GED, and English as a second languages classes.
As of August 2011, the Yeater Center also houses the Thompson O'Sullivan Studio Theatre, which is flexible space that allows the stage and seating configurations to change into different venues, such as a theatre in the round, corner seating or arena seating for 90 to 100 people. The creation of the Thompson O'Sullivan Studio Theatre was made possible with funds from Barbara Lamy Cooney, Sedalia, and Sylvia L. Thompson, Linn Creek.
