Biography Walter Frankl
The following is from Christy Campbell whose source is Grace Quinlan Frankl Campbell, step daughter of the artist:
WALTER FRANKL, son of Alfred Frankl, was born March 23, 1888 in New York City, NY, during the famous "great blizzard." He was the son of Austrian and German Jewish immigrants. He studied drama and art in Paris in the early 1900's, and was one of the original members of the Washington Square Players. Painting soon became his passion.
He served in World War I in France, and was at Chateau Thierry. After the Armistice, he was the first American soldier to cross the line into Germany, because he spoke German beautifully and could translate. He suffered from shell shock upon returning home to the U.S.
