Biography from the Archives of askART

These Notes represent the beginning of a possible future biography for this artist. Please click here if you wish to help in its development.

The following biography, submitted August 2004, is from Edith Kurie, niece of the artist:

Ruth Eastman (of the Eastman-Kodak family) was married blissfully to James Lynn Rodgers, a Captain in the Navy.  After his retirement from service they spent their lives wintering at their Caribbean-side home in Reading, Jamaica near Montego Bay, and summers in upstate New York.  Ruth continued to paint during their retirement more as a hobby and enjoyed her studio on their Jamaican property.  She began to lose her eyesight near her death in the mid-1970s.  A few years after her husband died she moved to a friend's home in Maryland which is where she died.
