This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Phyllis Servello:

I was fortunate enough to study with Mr. Travis from the ages of 16 to 19. I know that he painted some panoramas at the Museum of Natural History at the Texas State Fairgrounds. He also has a mural in the entryway to the Hall of State at the fairgrounds.

He gave me lessons from his home, which was literally filled with all different types of his artwork (masks, wood carvings, paintings, etc.).

He had given me one of his lithographs, but unfortunately it was stolen. He also drew a portrait of me in charcoal and had given it to me. I believe his grand-daughter is now in possession of it.

He told me that his father had disapproved of his career choice. His early works were destroyed in a house fire (his ex-mother-in-laws house). His second wife was a violinist who played for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
He was an excellent painter, a wonderful teacher, and a kind and interesting man. I treasure the fact that he was my teacher. I fondly remember my time spent under his tutelage.

From David Dike Fine Art (10/2006):
Exhibited: "Still Life with Gourds, Bottle and Bowl, 1955" at Olin Travis: Texas Master, Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, Canyon, Texas, 1995
