She studied in Kansas City's Art Institute, at the Art Students League in New York and in Chicago where she met her Painter-Husband Eduard Buk Ulreich. Buk Ulreich nicknamed her Nura because he 'never calls people by their right names.' Her right name is Norah Woodson Ulreich. When she and her husband do murals together they sign them Bukannura. Living in a Manhattan studio, they have no children because Nura feels a real one might engross her to the point that she could not paint imaginary ones." - from contemporary review in Time magazine. Clifton Paul "Kip" Fadiman (1904 -1999) was a popuar American intellectual, author, editor, radio and television personality.
