This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following  biographical information submitted by his daughter Alexandra Usher: 


He was born January 11, 1885 at Fort D. A. Russell, Wyoming, as the son of lieutenant Albert S. McNutt, U. S. Army.

He received his education at Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  MacNutt conducted post -graduate research and published papers on public health issues. He was a statistician for the Pittsburgh Typhoid Fever Commission (Russell Sage Foundation), and a health officer in Orange, New Jersey.  He published a manual for health officers (first of its kind), The Modern Milk Problem.  After serving as an officer in the Sanitary Corps of the U. S. Army in World War I, he adopted painting as a profession. 

MacNutt was a pupil of Charles H. Woodbury, N. A., and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; he also studied privately in Paris.  He then worked as a portrait painter in St. Louis, Missouri from 1921 until his death in 1974.  MacNutt served as a president of the St. Louis Artists' Guild.

He taught at the St. Louis School of Fine Arts and Woodbury Course in Applied Observation, Boston and Ogunquit, Maine, and was Associate Dean of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  MacNutt visited Europe frequently, where he painted General de Tinan of France and the Archduke Otto of Hungary.  His portraits are placed in St. Louis, the Midwest, Eastern states, France, and Italy.

Although he was primarily a portrait painter, he also painted landscapes, primarily in Ogunquit, ME.  He worked exclusively in oils.
Member of Harvard class of 1906, M.I.T. class of 1908, SAE Fraternity.
Married to Agnes Cady, St. Louis.  Children: Francis Scott MacNutt, Alexandra (Mrs. J. Richardson) Usher; six grandchildren.
