Paul Rabut characteristically immersed himself so thoroughly in research for his illustrations that he became an authority on the subject matter of his assignments. This led to his long-time interest in the United States history, in logging, in Northwest Indian culture and artifacts, as well as other primitive art: Oceanic, pre-Columbian, and especially African wood-carvings and masks. He was a consultant for collectors and galleries on the subject of primitive art and had one of the finest private collections in the country.

    Rabut attended the College of the City of New York, the art School of the National Academy of Design, the Grand Central Art School, and the Art Students League; his teachers included Jules Gotlieb, Harvey Dunn, Ivan Olinsky, and Lewis Daniel.

   His first break came when one of his early story illustrations for American Girl magazine won the Art Directors Club Medal in their annual exhibition in 1942. This led directly to commissions from The Saturday Evening Post and other major magazines. Subsequently, he won several additional Art Directors Club Awards for both editorial and advertising illustrations, and his work was selected for the State Department exhibition of advertising art, which traveled to Europe and South America in 1952. He exhibited widely and is represented in the permanent collection of the U. S. Medical Museum, Washington, D.C.
