This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Wallace Perry Hukill (April 19, 1874 - December 18, 1955)

Engraver and painter.  Born in Brooklyn, Long Island, New York to Selina Giles Hukill (August 15, 1851 - May 25, 1945) and Ezra Hukill (November 21, 1848 - March 20, 1932).  His father, Ezra, was raised in Bridgeport, Belmont County, Ohio and came to New York where he established himself in the stationary business.  The family resided on Lafayette Avenue in Brooklyn.

Hukill attended the Boys High School from which he graduated in 1892.  He married Florence Pfeiffer (1881-1965) and moved to Ridgewood New Jersey where the family lived on Orchard Place.  He followed in his father into business and was the manager of a stationary and printing business.  He operated his company, "Bettergraved Letter Heads," out of  a building located at 7 Dutch Street in New York City.  At one time he also worked out of 5 Beekman Street and 28 Warren Street as well.

In addition to his printing work, Wallace P. Hukill was a watercolorist who delighted in depicting scenes in and around his home in New Jersey and scenes of the North Fork of Long Island.  The Hukill family summered on the North Fork first in Greenport and later in Orient, both located in Southold Town.  His daughter, Elizabeth (b. 1911), was also an artist and an art teacher.

Wallace P. Hukill died suddenly on December 18, 1955 and was interred in Valleau Cemetery, located in Ridgewood, Bergen, County, New Jersey.  Hukills works are usually signed lower right with a monogram which includes the month and year of his works. 

None of his works are known to be in any public collections, though there are many examples in private collections.

Researched, compiled, and written by Geoffrey K. Fleming, Director, Southold Historical Society, Southold, NY.
