Edmund Alexander Huppert

Edmund Alexander Huppert was born near Alton, Illinois, November 22, 1863, but was reared to manhood in St. Louis, Mo.  He went to the public schools there and then to Washington University, after which his parents decided to give him an art education, as he had shown artistic talent ever since childhood.  A course at the St. Louis School of Fine Arts was followed by a three years' stay in Europe, where he worked early and late under the tutelage of masters.  He studied for a while in Royal Academy at Munich, but soon entered the Julian Academy in Paris, where he sat under the teachings of Lefebvre and Boulanger.  After some months spent in travel, he returned to St. Louis in 1887, and in 1889 came to Kansas City, where he established the Kansas City School of Fine Arts, with only energy and talent for capital.  He has made the venture a success, and the school now ranks with the best in the country.

     Professor Huppert was appointed supervisor of drawings in the public schools in 1902, a position that does not interfere with his own school work.  His canvases are in many galleries of not throughout the country, and hang in many public buildings, notably the Missouri State University.

  He married Miss Jessie Withers in 1891.  He is a Woodman, and a charter member of the Knife and Fork Club.
