This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted October 2004, is from Steele Ballew, a great great niece of Alexander Beers.

"Please, note that some times he signed his works 'de Beers', because he thought it to be more artistic and, therefore, more marketable.

Alexander Beers lived with his sister, Emma, in Elmhurst, Illinois for many years and worked for the Chicago Civic Opera House painting scenery backdrops. Later he worked for the Ringling Brothers Circus, painting the sideshow banners. Besides the many landscapes he sketched and painted, he produced portraits in a variety of mediums.

Beers also lived in Detroit, Michigan, probably in the 1920's, but I do not know for how long. His solitary lifestyle ended in Los Angeles, and his ashes are interned in a mausoleum at the Hollywood Cemetery. I believe he died in the 1950's, but I'll send you the date when I know for certain.
