Polish immigrant Bernard Baruch Zakheim, originally an upholsterer, begun studying art in Europe after WWI and requested political asylum in the U.S. in 1920. After arriving in San Francisco, he continued his art training at the California School of Fine Arts (which later became the San Francisco Art Institute). He painted the library portion of the mural in San Francisco's Coit Tower (Diego Rivera being another contributing artist) and painted "The History of Medicine" at the University of California Medical Center. The post office mural in Mineola, Texas is another of his works. In his later years he became a sculptor, working in wood and stone.
