American, 1910-1988


View raw data

There is some confusion with Leon Levinstein's life dates. Stephen Dater Gallery gives them as 1910-1998. Other sources (New York Times, Metropolitan Museum) give 1910-1988. He did die in 1988, though the SSDI gives September 20, 1908 as his birthdate. Paperwork with a gift of his prints to the NYPL gives 1913 as his birth. His Army Enlistment Records apparently give 1910.
