If this is Edwin Dawes, this is a short biography:
In the spring of 1914, Dawes was one of many artists who were notified that their pictures accepted by the jury of selection of the National Academy of Design were not to be exhibited (see Allied Artists of America). In the following year he painted the University of Minnesota Art Museum's Itasca: Origin of the Mississippi. This modest oil on masonite is a perfect example of tonalism tinged with impressionist elements. Dawes traveled west to execute a commission to paint various scenes of the Grand Canyon for Louis W. Hill. Also in 1915 Mr. and Mrs. Dawes moved to New York during what would become the most prolific period of his career. Then Dawes purchased a mining company in Loveloch, Nevada (1918), which drained most of his energy.
