Biography from Boston Art Club:
The following obituary of the artist was submitted by John Curuby, President of the Boston Art Club.  His source is a May, 1973 issue of the Taos News, Taos, New Mexico.

"Dies at 72 Richard William Dicus, a resident of Taos since 1942, died Wednesday morning at Holy Cross hospital. Mr. Dicus was born In Streater, IL, in 1901 and later attended Knox College for a while. He studied at the Chicago Art Institute and worked with Paul Ouzonoff of the Moscow Arts Theater, painting murals. He eventually went to New York and studied art at the Student's Art League and also privately. Moving to Baltimore, Md., he became manager of the advertising department of Hutzler's Department Store.

In 1928 he was married to Kathleen Jarvis and for the next five years they traveled in Europe, where in Munich Mr. Dicus studied painting with Gustave Johannes Buchner. From Germany they went to Paris, where Mr. Dicus studied with Jean Marchand and Fernand Leger, then to Mallorca where he studied and painted portraits and landscapes. Returning to Baltimore in 1934 Mr. Dicus established his own art school and was on the faculty of the Maryland Art Institute, where he taught a special class in painting.

From 1942 to 1945 he was a lieutenant commander in the US. Navy, and after W.W. II he returned to Taos where he and his wife founded La Finca, a guest ranch south of Taos. In 1955 Mr. Dicus and Mark Romero started The Work Shop in Taos. There, Mr. Dicus designed custom made furniture in the Spanish colonial style, and also designed several houses in the Taos area. Romero said. "I remember we opened The Work Shop on April of 1955. and we had a wonderful relationship."

Even though Mr. Dicus had retired several years before his death, but he was still designing for The Work Shop"
