Biographical/Historical Note

Painter, World War II artist-correspondent.


The material was discovered among the papers and library of art historian E. Maurice Bloch, which Ars Libri, Ltd., a rare book dealer, had purchased. Reep mailed the notes to Bloch in 1962 and had never been successful in getting them back. The Archives was contacted by Ars Libri in 1993, and in turn contacted Reep, who donated the material in 1994.
