Born in San Antonio, TX on April 1, 1904. Everitt grew up in Hollywood, CA. In 1922 he lived briefly in Algeria and then studied art at the Sorbonne in Paris. Upon returning to California about 1930, he settled in Oakland and established a studio at 524 20th Street. Multi-talented, he had a joint photography show at his studio with Lawton R. Kennedy. He designed and lived in a home in Lafayette as well as a house in Orinda which was featured in Interiors (June 1952). He also designed most of the structures at Oakland's Children's Fairyland. He rarely signed his paintings with his own name, preferring the pseudonyms "Lombardo" and "Fanti." Everitt died in Miami, FL in 1978. Exh: Public Works of Art Project, 1934.
