    Kindred McLeary was first head of the art deprtment of U.T. He allowed nude painting at his home for the art students, but was opposed. He went to Cornell and taught at Cornell. He fell off his roof and was killed in the fall, and his body was returned to Weimar, Texas, his ancestral area, in the Masonic cemetery. He has several murals in NYC and Washington DC.
