Mr. Taper was born in London in 1918 and came to the United States at the age of eleven. He was educated at the University of California, Berkeley, and Stanford University. During World War II he was a second lieutenant in the infantry. After the War he served as art intelligence officer for the Military Government in Germany, where he was involved in the effort to recover and restitute the works of art taken by the Nazis.
