This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information is from Janet Wilzbach, Museum Collections Manager of the ST. Louis County Parks Department.  She has been researching Missouri artist Trew Herbert Hocker  and wrote:

"Trew Hocker was born on June 17, 1913 in Sedalia, MO.  His parents were Walter William Hocker (1885-1958) and Jessie Hayes Hocker (1888-1976).  He had three siblings Walter Hayes Hocker (unknown dates), Hazel Hocker Gamble (1917-2004) and John Robert Hocker (1923-1929).  Trew died while working in New York City, NY on January 7, 1963.  He is buried in the Crown Hill Cemetery in Sedalia, MO.
Trew served in the United States Army from May 16, 1942 to August 20, 1943 as a sergeant and from August 21, 1943 to February 11, 1946 as a captain.  I have been able to find that he was stationed at Jefferson Barracks, MO in 1942-43.  One of his paintings Jefferson Barracks Train Station hung in the Post Commanding Officer’s office for many years.  It is now part of the permanent JB museum military collection and on display in our Powder Magazine Museum.  Mr. Hocker has many other pieces in other museums, such as the Nelson-Atkins in Kansas City, MO and pieces that seem to be in private hands.

Biography from Heritage Auctions (
Trew Hocker was born in Sedalia, MO, on June 17, 1913.  He studied at the University of Missouri, Kansas City Art Institute, and the St. Louis School of Fine Arts.  He also studied under Thomas Hart Benton.

Hocker painted murals for the New York World's Fair and the San Francisco Exposition.  He was a District Supervisor of WPA Art Program and later developed graphic training aids for the AAF in World War II.

In the 1950s, Hocker designed sets for television and stage, including the 1950s series, Ellery Queen, starring Richard Hart. He also painted mural decorations for stores, restaurants, and colleges. He settled in New York City in 1947.  His death date is unknown.
