William Millarc was born in Portland, Oregon, in 1920, of Russian-Polish parentage. Having finished the eighth grade in school, he started out in life at the age of thirteen, working at a great variety of things. Following the war, Millarc made use of the government's subsidy for the education of veterans by studying for three years at the Bisttram School of Fine Arts in Los Angeles, "where I first learned how to paint and where I was taught some of the more delicate abstractions in art and life." His paintings were first shown in an exhibition staged by the Los Angeles Art Association. He died in 1957.
