This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biographical data has been supplied by Thomas Henry Kenny.

Paul C. Stahr, 69, noted illustrator, who contributed to Harper's Bazaar, American Magazine, Argosy, Collier's Weekly, Woman's Home Companion and other magazines, suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and died at Long Beach, New York Hospital in 1953. (I do not have the day or month of his death).

In 1954, I purchased 100 paintings on canvas with Argosy paste-ups, from John Mulraney, a dealer in Woodmere, New York. The paintings were part of the Paul Stahr estate. Over the years I sold off the paintings until I now have only two left, which I intend to keep.

His son Jerry, an accountant, was a neighbor on Jerome Avenue in Mineola, New York.  A friend of mine, George Gaydos, when a young man knew the Stahr family well and dated one of the daughters.

Paul Stahr did a portrait of John Philip Sousa on the last tour the famous leader made with his band.  During World War I, he did a poster for Herbert Hoover's food campaign for the Belgians, the original of which is now in the National Archives in Washington.

He was born in Philadelphia and studied at the National Academy of Design, and was a student of John Ward.  Mr. Stahr was a member of the Society of Illustrators.

He retired in 1943. After his death, surviving him were his wife, Edith, a son Jerry, and a daughter Mrs. Edith Russ, all residents of Long Beach., New York.
