Biography from Blanden Memorial Art Museum:
Robert Alden Reaser was born April 1898 in New York City and died in 1980 in Palm Beach, Florida. His father, Willbur Aaron Reaser [1860 - 1942], was a well known painter in his time. His father's family had moved from Ohio to Fort Dodge shortly after Willbur's birth. His mother Cora May Conlee was born in Fort Dodge in 1863, the daughter of Andrew Jackson Conlee and Emily Jane Bledsoe. Cora Conlee Reaser was an accomplished pianist.

His father was boyhood friends with Senator and Mrs. Jonathan P. Dolliver and through this relationship Robert as a young boy met Theodore Roosevelt in the presidential office in 1904. George Roberts, Director of the Treasury at this time, was also from Fort Dodge, and the Roberts family was among their numerous Washington friends.

Robert Reaser's parents were always on the move. In the United States, they went frequently by train to San Francisco and Los Angeles and then back to Washington DC and New England, stopping in Fort Dodge, Des Moines, Chicago and Minneapolis along the way, as well as spending months at a time in Paris, the Riviera, Italy, and the Netherlands. They were a socially congenial family of interesting individuals, who made long term friendships easily.

Robert served as an ambulance driver at the front during World War I in France, staying 22 months without leave until the war ended. A letter sent to his parents is reprinted in The Good Soldier: a selection of soldiers' letters, 1914 - 1918 compiled by N. P. Dawson.
