This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Arthur Whitebear Litts was born in New York on Aug. 21, 1878.  Litts was a native American who was a member of the Iroquois Nation (Oneida and Mohawk).  His early years were spent along the Canadian-New York border.  He adopted the name Litts to avoid being put on a reservation.  After studying law through a correspondence course, he obtained a degree to practice law, just as Abraham Lincoln did.  He was a resident of Des Moines, IA in 1920 and soon moved to California.  By 1930 he had settled in Pasadena where he remained until his death on Aug. 26, 1968. A self-taught painter, his rare paintings include landscapes of the high Sierra and coastal scenes.
