Pam Georg Rueter (Amsterdam, Feb. 18, 1906 - there, Sept. 10, 1998); Dutch draftsman, illustrator, graphic artist and woodcarver known for the manufacture of more than 1000 ex-libris and dozens of copies of occasional graphics.
Pam Rueter came from an artistic family; his father was Georg Rueter, his sisters were Gerarda Rueter and Maria Hofker-Rueter, who was married to the artist Willem Gerard Hofker. The architect Theo Rueter was his uncle.
Originally, Rueter learned the wood carving of his father, but later studied at the Institute for Training of Drawing Teachers and later at the Rijksakademie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. Because he wanted to become an actor, the scene nevertheless continued to draw him, he played during his life in various amateur companies, including the company Baat, which gave performances in the basement of the House with the three Money Boxes on the Rozengracht in Amsterdam. For a short time he worked in Germany as a costume and set designer at the Badische Landestheater in Karlsruhe. After his return to the Netherlands, he became a fabric designer at the Van Dissel linen factory in Eindhoven. In 1930 he collaborated on the construction of the Dutch pavilion at the World Exhibition in Antwerp under the supervision of the architect Wijdeveld.
In 1929 he designed his first ex libris. Over the years his production in this area grew to more than 1000 pieces, including flower and animal motifs, but he also designed birth announcements, bookbindings, New Year cards, prayer cards and charters. He also illustrated many books. As a lecturer he worked at the Graphic School in Amsterdam, and he was also a lecturer at Delft University of Technology.
Rueter was a priest in the Free Catholic Church for 30 years, and in the Liberal Catholic Church International (a theosophical society) he was appointed bishop.
