Biography from the Archives of askART

 The watercolors of Alice Abeel, Auburn artist, will be on exhibit in the art gallery of the Berkeley Women’s City Club. …This is Miss Abeel’s first one-man exhibit in the Bay Region.  Her first one-man show was held in May at the Crocker Art Gallery in Sacramento. … Miss Abeel has spent the last four years teaching music and art in the Auburn public schools.  She is a graduate of the California College of Arts and Crafts as well as the University of California.  For the summer she is visiting in Berkeley and doing graduate work in art with Erle Loran at the University.” from Berkeley Daily Gazette, August 5, 1943, page 4.

“Alice Abeel will Address Nursery School Teachers.  Miss Alice Abeel, native of Sonoma County, who has developed a unique business in Berkeley providing visual aids for learning, will be the principal speaker Saturday, January 7, in San Rafael at a meeting of Marin and Sonoma County nursery school teachers.  As a public school teacher, amateur photographer, and art major, Miss Abeel had the proper background for producing visual education material. During the past seven years, she has produced study sets of photographs showing a series of activities on a wide variety of subjects.  Valcraft study prints are widely used now throughout California and are being adopted for use in Arizona schools. ‘Animals of the Zoo’ 31 prints picturing 17 animals, will be one of the sets on exhibit at the nursery school teachers’ meeting….Born in Santa Rosa and reared in Sebastopol, Miss Abeel attended Santa Rosa College and the California School of Arts and Crafts after which she received the bachelor and master degrees from the University of California.” from Daily Independent Journal (San Rafael, California), January 5, 1961, page 18.
