Additional Information

Paul E. Barr, an accomplished painter, was the first Chair of UND’s Art Department—a position he held for over a quarter century. Born in Tipton County, Indiana, Barr studied art in the United States and France. During the course of his career in art, he painted scenes in over ten countries and also wrote about art. He co-authored a textbook with Eugene E. Myers, Creative Lettering, and independently wrote an early study on regional art history, North Dakota Artists, published posthumously in 1954.
