Born in Oregon on Dec. 20, 1905.  Early in his career Nesbitt worked in the Disney Studios in Los Angeles; however, by 1932 he was a resident of San Francisco.  His marriage to Lady Mary Faith Montagu in 1938 ended in divorce in 1940.  His last years were spent on the Monterey Peninsula as a resident of Pacific Grove.  Nesbitt died at the Monterey County Hospital on June 9, 1953.  Primarily a watercolorist, he derived his subject matter from Haiti (1929), Hawaii (1930), the Orient (1936), and northern California.
