Walter H. Kiser (1902-1980) was an artist born in New Albany, Indiana. After graduating from New Albany High School, he was awarded a scholarship at the John Herron Art Institute in Indianapolis, Indiana. Later he studied under Paul Plaschke at the Louisville Art Academy in Louisville, Kentucky. Kiser is known for his ink drawings of interior and exterior views of regional historic buildings in Indiana and Kentucky. From 1934 to 1942 Kiser ran a weekly column, "The Neighborhood Sketches" in The Louisville Times; these were later compiled in a book, Historic Houses, published by the Kentucky Library in Bowling Green, Kentucky. This gallery features selected pen and ink drawings from The Filson’s Walter H. Kiser Drawings Collection [Mss. A K61].
