Biographical Note

Theron Wendell Kilmer (1872-1946), a well-known New York pediatrician and police surgeon, pursued his photographic avocation by specializing in soft-focus head-and-shoulder portraits of men, most of whom were his friends and/or colleagues. Kilmer won many prizes for his photographs of character-filled faces. He also published more than a dozen portraits and technical articles in the American Annual of Photography and in  Photo-Era, to which he contributed from ca. 1915 until his death. He was a member of the Royal Photographic Society and the Oval Table Society
