This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Chicago, IL on Oct. 26, 1908.  Dreis moved to California with his family in 1914.  He studied at the CSFA and with Diego Rivera.  During the 1920s he was a resident of San Francisco and by the early 1930s had moved down the peninsula to Santa Cruz.  During the late 1930s he lived in Woodstock, NY as an employee of the Federal Art Project.  About 1946 he returned to Santa Cruz and abandoned art to assist in the family tool and die business.  After retiring in the early 1960s, he built a sail boat and sailed around the world, mostly alone.  Dreis died in Santa Cruz, CA on July 13, 1975. A pacifist, his estate of more than a million dollars was left to the American Civil Liberties.

Exh:  SFAA, 1931; Calif. Statewide (Santa Cruz), 1931.  Mural:  Girls Commercial High School (Brooklyn, NY).
