William Dean Fausett


Vermont painter, Dean Fausett (William Dean Fausett), who painted portraits of Ronald Reagan, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Hoagy Carmichael and former Vermont Governor Thomas Salmon, died in December 1998 at the age of 85. Fausett, who was known by his middle name, split his time between Dorset, Vermont and New York. Fausett painted murals and landscapes, as well as portraits.
