Biography from net: "Berger Saint Fagenstrom was born in Great Falls, Montana, on March 17, 1914, to Hjalmar and Hilma Hammer Fagenstrom. He was raised in Montana and as a child he watched Charlie Russell and O C Seltzer paint.
After graduation from high school, he won a statewide art scholarship to Montana State University at Bozeman. He went on to enroll at the Art Center School in Los Angeles, and was there off and on for four years when finances were available.
During his stay at the Art Center he worked at Disney for about a year. He then enlisted in the U.S. Navy the day after Pearl Harbor. He was assigned to the newly established Seabees, or Naval Construction Battalion, and was sent to the Pacific area. He was assigned as the battalion artist and some of his works are displayed in the Seabee Museum at Oxnard, California."
