The following, submitted February 2003, is from Elizabeth Hanson:

I have information that appeared on the announcement of the first show in
Oklahoma City Public Library - March 8, 1954. It was sponsored by the Kappa Pi Art Fraternity. I met Jack Vallee then and became a fan and a collector of his art.

Jack Vallee was born and educated in Wichita Falls, Texas, graduating from the Hardin Junior College of that City. After five years service in the U.S. Marines during World War II, he went to New York City where he studied painting for five years at the Art Students League under instructors such as Howard Trafton, noted Designer; Reginald Marsh of the famous "Ash Can" group; and Frank Vincent DuMond, the famous portrait and landscape painter.

Mr. Vallee lived in New York and maintained a studio there for several years and frequently travels the New England coast painting landscapes. The summer was spent off the coast of Maine painting the sea. He has recently returned from the Caribbeans where he painted in the Virgin Islands.
