John Lear's art might have saved him from harm's way during World War II.

A niece, Susan MacBride, recalled that when he was assigned to Fort Riley, Kansas, "the generals and the officers found out he was an artist [and] diverted his talents to doing portraits of the officers and their families."

Later, she said, he was assigned to illustrate military manuals, booklets and charts for service-wide distribution.

On Wednesday, John Brock Lear Jr., 98, artist and teacher, died (showing 500 of 2391 characters).
