structors in San Francisco and
New York. He became an asso
ciate and close friend of Keith

of that day.
Art to Mr. Heath was closely
allied with nature, and this lovi
for the beautiful took him on
sketching trips that led to the
coast of Maine, the eastern lakes
and mountains, the Canadian
Rockies and the mountains of the
Northwest. The Yosemite, the
high Sierras and the entire coast
line were home to him. lie was
a landscape painter, but in his
marines he excelled and in mary
of the finest homes throughout
the land bis pictures hang. Hi
loved his own Monterey coast, ami
on both rides secured many of bis
views. The redwoods, and espec
ially the Big Basin were favorite
sktchlng spots. He bad summer
cottages on both Mount Hermon
and Ben Lomond.
