As a young man, Dyer attended St. Paul’s School in New Hampshire. He graduated from his father’s alma mater, Brown University, in 1894 with a Bachelor of Science degree. Dyer traveled to Europe where he studied art in France, Holland, Italy and Germany and “…acquired the love of old-world beauty so often expressed in his paintings.” Dyer returned to Europe each year for painting tours lasting up to six months. Painting in watercolor Dyer captured views of the European countryside and picturesque villages. In 1919, Dyer received an honorary Master of Arts degree from Brown University and became an honorary member of Phi Beta Kappa..
