Elfred Lee Biography

 Born in Korea to missionary parents in
 1940, Elfred Lee and his family were
 evacuated to the Philippines where they
 were captured and placed in prison camps
 for 3 years. There, at the age of 4, Elfred
 began drawing with colored pencils
 provided by an artist friend. In the winter
 of 1945 a daring raid by American
 paratroopers rescued the Lee's and
 thousands of others from execution.

 Back in Korea, he continued to draw and
 paint until the Communist invasion in 1950.
 Traveling to Japan he studied with artists
 there, learning the patience and precision
 of the Asian Culture.

 During the Vietnam War, in the United
 States Army, Elfred was chosen to receive
 Hollywood training in motion picture
 photography and sent on a special mission
 in 1967 to Vietnam. There he filmed and
 directed movies which are now part of the
 history of that war. On one night-mission
 he was shot down in a helicopter.

 Elfred has been on four expeditions up
 Mount Ararat in Turkey to search for Noah's
 Ark. On one such mission in 1986, he even
 teamed up with Astronaut Jim Irwin.
 Political unrest has made these searches
 difficult and dangerous. He has interviewed
 and sketched the memories of native
 Armenian George Hagopian who saw the
 ark as a child during a drought in the early

 Elfred Lee's education includes two Masters
 and an honorary Doctorate in Fine Arts
 from San Jose State University, California;
 Syracuse University, New York; and Faith
 College, Birmingham, Alabama with special
 training at the University of London,
 England and Hebrew University, Israel. He
 has taught at several colleges and
 universities in the United States and Mexico
 including 9 years as founding chairman of
 the Art Department of Oakwood College,
 Huntsville, Alabama.
