Clare Kellogg’s husband, Gardner D. Stout, was the president of the Board of Trustees of the American Museum of Natural History in New York from 1968 to 1974. Before that, he had been executive committee chairman of the Audubon Society. He edited Shore Birds of North America, and after spending a day amid the coastal wildlife along Spermaceti Cove, New Jersey, remarked to a friend, “I feel so sorry for people who don’t do this.” His wife, Clare Kellogg Stout (1912-1988), shared his interest in conservation, and accompanied her husband on many of his trips. Elsie Dodge Pattee also painted miniatures of the sitter’s two sons, Gardner Jr. and Prentice Stout, which were exhibited with this portrait in 1939.
