The following, submitted April 2005, is from David Nash Leavitt, paternal nephew of the artist.

David Franklin Leavitt was born in St. Louis, Missouri on August 28, 1897 to Franklin and Margaret Nash Leavitt. He died in an US Navy aircraft incident in 1945 when he bailed out over the Chesapeake Bay, and was recovered several days later wrapped in his parachute. At the time he was a Lieutenant Commander in the United States Navy. During WWII he developed the dye used to find downed pilots (showing 500 of 1437 characters).
