This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A printer and lithographer, Edmund Burke Kellogg worked on newspapers in New London and Stonington, Connecticut as well as Toronto, Canada, having studied steel engraving with a brother, Jarvis Griggs Kellogg of Boston.

Then Edmund joined his brother, Daniel Kellogg in his lithography firm, D.W. Kellogg & Co. in Hartford, Connecticut, and remained there primarily but also spent time in New York City.

In 1842, another brother, Elijah Chapman Kellogg, joined the firm; Daniel Kellogg moved away; and Edmund and Elijah renamed the business E.B. & E.C. Kellogg, which in 1848 became Kelloggs & Comstock with the addition of John Chenevard Comstock (1818-1862).  The business became known for sentimental genre subjects as well as landscape prints showing accurate architectural depictions such as A View of Williston Seminary, East Hampton, Mass.  Many of their landscapes were romanticized such as Hyde Park, Hudson River, which, like many of their prints reflected the popularity of the Hudson River School painters.

In New York City in 1846 to 1847, the brothers became partners with a map dealer and printmaker, Horace Thayer, naming that business Kellogg and Thayer, and beginning 1845, the Kellogg brothers maintained an office in New York City.

In 1849, Edmund Kellogg went into business on his own, functioning solely as a printer and not a publisher, but in 1855, he resumed partnership with his brother, Elijah, and with the reunion, they resurrected the name of E.B. & E.C. Kellogg.  This name, which became famous, was retained until 1867, when it became Kellogg & Bulkeley Company, and the Kellogg brothers retired.  However, Charles E. Kellogg (1839-1933), son of Edmund Kellogg, joined the firm with William H. Bulkeley (1840-1902), and remained until 1874, except for several years away during the Civil War.

Of the period between 1855 and 1867, it was written that the Kelloggs did "some of the most beautiful and impressive landscape prints the Kellogg firm ever issued." (Finlay 98)  However, instead of staying with this strength, they focuesd on producing popular hand-colored prints, which made them competitors of Currier & Ives of New York.
