Welcome to Winston Hewitt Tribute Website!

Born on October 22, 1922 and passing on December 6, 2006, Winston was a remarkable man who dedicated his life to the possiblity of "becoming." His first choice among instruments of "becoming" was Art; specifically, oil painting. Through painting, he explored what he called the "Scapes of the Subconscious" in a continuous effort to understand and create the meanings of his own life, and of life in general. Art, as the summary expression of his "Authentic Interests" was framed within a long career as a traveler, a multi-linguist, an OSS officer, and a Distinguished Professor of French Literature at California State University Dominguez Hills, where he endowed a Fine Arts Painting Scholarship.
