This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born Wichita, Kansas in 1924, Oscar Larmer was a painter known for his landscapes of the Flint Hills and also was a teacher and administrator.  He began studying art in high school with William Dickerson, and earned a three-year certificate in painting from the Minneapolis (MN) School of Art; a BFA from the University of Kansas, Lawrence in 1949; and an MFA in 1955 from the University of Wichita with his thesis written on “Expressions in Contemporary Painting.”

Larmer studied with William Dickerson, Briggs Dyer, Karl Mattern, Raymond Eastwood, Robert Green, Eugene McFarland, and Robert Kiskadden.  He taught at the Wichita Art Association, was assistant director of the Wichita Art Museum and an illustrator for Boeing Aircraft Company before joining the art faculty of Kansas State University, Manhattan in 1956.

He served as department head from 1965-1971, director of the graduate art program 1972-1989, and retired in 1989. 

Oscar Larmer was co-author of A Foundation for Expressive Drawing (Edina, MN: Burgess Publishing Co., 1972).
