(Laverne) Teall Messer

Born in Dixon Illinois in 1897, Teall Messer dropped the name Lavern as soon as he came "of age".  He went to New York to be an artist and intellectual.  He hung out with the playwrights of the time and ended up with an award from the Rockefellers to go to Paris and study painting.  This was in the 1920's.  He stayed for several years in Paris being the stereoty (showing 500 of 3240 characters).
