Biography   Alton Wiles

This following biography was researched, compiled, and written by Geoffrey K. Fleming, Director, Southold Historical Society, Southold, NY.

Alton T. Wiles (1866 - May 19, 1938)

Watercolorist and miniature painter.  Born in England to Elizabeth and James Wiles.  While some sources report Alton Wiles as having trained and/or exhibited at the Royal Academy in London, their records do not indicate this is so (This fact was reported in the New York Tribune as early as 1903).  He may have claimed this at some point as a way to improve his standing in the American artistic community, where it "… was easy …  … to claim training at the Royal Academy but difficult in the US to corroborate the facts."&nb   ...  Displaying 750 of 7043 characters.
