This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Kindred McLeary is primarily known as an architect; however, his skills extended to teaching fine art as well as painting, murals and set design.  McLeary was born in Weimar, Texas in 1901, graduated from high school and then moved to Austin, Texas to study architecture at the University of Texas.

During his time at the University, McLeary traveled to France to study at the American School of Fine Arts, Fontainebleau where he studied under Jean Carlu.  McLeary returned to Austin and received a degree in architecture followed by work in Florida and New York.

In 1926, McLeary assisted Jean Carlu with a mural in Boston and helped execute murals on the ceiling of the Ziegfield Theater in New York.  Murals by him are also on the ceiling of the Landa House in San Antonio, the U.S. Post Office in South Norwalk, Connecticut, and the Madison Square Post Office at 23rd Street between Lexington and Third Avenues in New York City.

In 1927, he joined the architecture faculty at the University of Texas, but was asked to leave at the end of the year because he was making home brew during Prohibition times.  The next year he joined the architecture faculty of the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh and remained there until his death.

McLeary died from injuries sustained in a fall at his studio in the Allegheny Mountains near Confluence, Pennsylvania in 1941.

He was a member of the Pittsburgh Art Association.  His exhibitions included the Edgar B. Davis Competition, San Antonio (1928); Pittsburgh Art Association; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia (1940); Laguna Gloria Art Museum, Austin, Texas.

The painting Cotton by McLeary in the Edgar B. Davis Competition was controversial because of the perception that it was obscene because of the depiction of a nude black female.
