This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Paula Kloster was professor and head of the department of art at Arizona State College when she was appointed curator of the American Art Collection in 1951. The original collection of sixteen oil paintings donated by Oliver B. James, a New York City native, expanded to include145 works of 18th and early 19th century and contemporary artists in various media originally valued at a quarter of a million dollars. The collection, located in the Matthews Library and later the Art Museum, brought cultural life to the students, faculty, staff, school children and the community through exhibitions, art panels, lectures and gallery talks.

The American Collection and the educational programs that supported it were the seed of today's nationally recognized University Art Museum, Katherine K. Herberger College of Fine Arts.

Kloster, born in North Dakota, was very active in Arizona beginning 1928 when she became teacher at Arizona State University in Tempe.  From 1949 into the 1960s, she was Professor of Art.  She was also a prolific writer on art education subjects including be co-author of A Guide for the Improvement of the Teaching of Art in the Schools of Arizona.  Kloster, who married Wilbur Wasser, was also a painter, sculptor and block printer artist with a woodcut titled, American Southwest, circa 1930.

Her art education included the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis School of Art, University of North Dakota, Stanford University, Chouinard Art School, Art Students League in New York and University of Southern California with Dan Lutz, Carlos Merida, Jean Charlot and Frank McIntosh.

Among Kloster's association memberships were the Arizona Art Education Association, which she served as President in 1934 and 1950; Arizona Art Assocation; and American Artists Professional League.  She exhibited with the Phoenix Fine Art Association, winning a prize in 1930; Tucson Fine Arts Festival; Arizona Art Guild; and Arizona State Fair.
