This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Wilbur C. Kensler    (1890-1939)


An art instructor, a World War I Army veteran and a Commander of the Merritt Lamb American Legion Post in Muskegon, Wilbur C. Kensler died at the age of 49 in Muskegon, Michigan on December 2, 1939.


He was born at Middle Point, Ohio, on February 24, 1890.  His college studies were done at Ohio Northern and Ohio Wesleyan Universities, and at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. He was awarded his A.B. degree from Central State Teachers College.


Kensler went to Muskegon in 1916 just prior to the war, having taught for three years at Highland Park, Illinois.  He enlisted there and was sent overseas in June, 1918, as a camouflage artist and photographer in Company D of the 26th Engineers.  He saw the fighting at Chateau Thierry, at St. Mihiel and the Meuse-Argonne sector in France and was at the Sedan at the end of the war.


Kensler was widely recognized for his skill as an artist, and his paintings, particularly in choice of colors, and sketches were greatly admired wherever exhibited.  He was popular with students at Muskegon Central Campus, having taught there for 23 years, and he inspired many to develop their abilities with pencil and brush during his long stay in the art department.
