Harry Tauber was a Viennese architect and artist. He arrived in Vancouver in the early 1930s, and established himself as a notably flamboyant artist, teacher, and lecturer. He was one of the three founding directors of the B.C.College of Arts in Vancouver when it opened. Afterwards, he traveled to Nootka with Jock Macdonald, Macdonald's wife Barbara, and Leslie Planta. At Nootka the group tried to make a living while Jock painted, refer to letter in references.
