This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Note from Rex Ackerson:

Mr. Winebrenner was a high school student at University Preparatory School at Tonkawa, Oklahoma from 1904-1908. He then went on to the Chicago Art Institute and after graduation spent about one year studying in Italy.
He taught at University Preparatory School from 1915-17, not in the
1920's.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Note from Alice Parshall:

My father Harry F. Winebrenner was for many years the head of the art
department at the Venice High School in Venice, California. The school
was well known for its small pond and the sculpture he created that
graced the front of the school buildings on Venice Blvd.

His name was also associated with one of his pupils, the actress Myrna Loy {Myrna Williams} who also posed for the main statue in the group.

During those years he made a bust of Abbot Kinney, the founder of
Venice, California that I believe still survives in the Venice Library.
