A Memory of Noel Daggett in HawaiiMarian Donville Palumbo
I met Noel Daggett when I was visiting Hawaii in November of 1965 from Canada. We were both staying at the Waikiki Biltmore on Waikiki Beach and I met him at the piano bar in the lobby. He was a handsome, charming man who introduced me to the delicious wonders of grilled lobster tails and baked potatoes with sour cream and chives! I was 18; he was about to turn 40 but was still the handsomest man in Hawaii! And a true gentleman. He was just returning from Samoa and showed me the work he'd done there, which was awesome, and also told me great tales of his travels. I went home and got married, but am pleased to know, some 45+ years later through the wonder of the internet, how successful he became.
I lived in his mothers house in San FranciscoGreg Piper
I have a painting on my wall that I inherited from my mother Viola. It was given to her by Noel in the late 50's. She treasured it and her good friend was Noel's mother. My mother rented a room from her on Dolloras St. in S.F. Mrs. Daggott was my babysitter as a child. I remember Noel giving me a ride in his MG to the beach on a foggy day in the City. I've tried to contact his niece, and two nephews who were my childhood friends to no availe. His sisters name was Sarah. Her childrens names were Maralee, Tim, and Luther. I was hoping someone out there could put me in touch with the family again since I've been away from the Bay Area for 30 years now. Noel was full of life and I remember him to be very generous to people.
Remembering my Uncle Noel DaggettKristina Doggett
He was a very intriging man and had wonderful sence of humor. We were born on the same day Dec 25th. Although, I did not get to really know him until my father his half brother William Doggett passed away in Nov 92, it was a piece of my fathers tales coming to life about this man Noel. He traveled the world and shared many of those stories to my father and then to me. When he told of the things and places he expericened it felt like you were there with him. I have pictures of him as a boy then a young man and of course some letter and family stuff my father had saved. I feel very forgenit to have had him my life and part of my family. I miss him but was remember the good times and laughter. Especially the lessons and colors of life he showed to me thru his art
Remembering NoelKen Dowers
In early 1997 I was contracted by Noel to remodel his house in Tucson. We had to place a very large beam across the main living area, and remove a post, that came down in the middle of the room. Noel helped out, as he was always a man of integrity. He signed an artist proof, of one, in a series, bridge paintings he had completed in the Mid West. Later in the year, I stopped by to visit him, and we talked for hours. That is what I remember the most. He had such wonderful stories of his life and accounts in time, as if I was there with him, on his journey through life. He showed me the paintings on his doors, inside his house and the paintings he was working on, in the guest house also. He slipped into his studio, behind his house and brought out a print of a cowboy saddling up his horse, by the camp fire, then thanked me for the day and gave me the print. I have kept news paper articles on him and kept them together with the bridge proof, hanging in our living room all these years. As I had my coffee this morning, I sat and remembered the stories and the wonderful time He and I had that day.
Thanks to all who have wrote in about Noel. He will be missed, but remembered greatly, for who he was, not just the great artist.

I am researching Noel Daggett. I have acquired a lovely piece titled Hunger, from "Mexico Sketchbook" This is from the early 1960's. I also have an article American Artist Magazine where he is also featured from 1963... I have found a few references online and am interested in his earlier works and any information anyone might share. Thank You

Noel Daggetts early workTom Norton
If anyone has info on Noel's early work I would love to discuss with you. I have come across an erotic signed print of Noel's including among other things graphic representations of sex, a develish self portrait and other scenes all depicted on the same print but cannot find any information on it. Any and all help would be appreciated.
U.S.Coast Guard ArtRichard Lewis
Having served in the U.S.Coast Guard during the
VietNam era and having studied fine art in college, I often 'google' around looking for interesting things. I came
across art on a Coast Guard
site that included several pieces of Noel Daggett's. I saw many others, but Mr. Daggett's did not deal with the simple "Coast Guard" stuff as most. On the other hand, he dealt with the people and country of VietNam as seen through the eyes of an artist. I dare say he must be a father. His two works about the blind school looks just like a father painting his children. Mr. Daggett's art will remain with me for some time. VietNam was a terrible place to be then, and to see it as beautiful as in his art, its a pleasant thing to experience.
