This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted September 2004, is from Paul Bruney, former student of the artist.

Raymond Scully was an art teacher in the New Orleans Public School system. He taught fine art (which included art history and architecture) and mechanical drawing when I was in junior high school at P.A. Capdau on Franklin Avenue (1961-63). He was by far my favorite teacher.

Obviously very gifted, he showed students the techniques used for pencil, ink, block printing, pastels, oils, and watercolors. If I'm remembering correctly, he was left-handed. He drew and painted while we watched, an amazing thing to see because his entire arm would follow his hand in sweeping flows...very at ease, almost casual gestures. . . Made everything look easy.

He had his own style and technique, which is evident in the pictures he brought into class (I recall one for the marquee at the Saenger (sp?) theater) as well as the one or two I've seen on the web. (I've wanted one of his paintings for a long time, but they are difficult to find.) He also carved (had a large carved Tiki Head for the front of his home in Algiers) and worked in papier mache. I don't think there was any field of art in which he did not excel.

He was soft-spoken and good humored and genuinely kind. He had a thick shock of dark hair, and liked to play music in the background during class. He was a cigarette smoker. He died far too young of leukemia...a terrible loss to all that knew him. He didn't have children, and I'm not sure whether his wife is still with us or whether he has surviving relatives.
