He earned his M.D. from the University of Virginia in 1933 and a master's degree in medicine from the University of Minnesota in 1937. Butt was a resident at the Mayo Clinic when he made his most notable finding that Vitamin K stopped bleeding in patients with jaundice, previously a fatal condition. He later worked with dicumarol isolated by , and conducted the first human studies that demonstrated its blood thinning properties. He worked at the Mayo Clinic his entire career, including terms on both the board of governors and board of trustees and was widely considered the last link to its founders (he was supervised by William Mayo).
