Danford Barney (1892-1952)
In the First World War, Barney served with the Yale Mobile Hospital Unit, which was attached to American armies in the battles of Saint-Mihiel and Meuse-Argonne. From 1922 until 1930 Barney maintained a photographic studio in New York, where he made a series of portraits of authors and artists. He was twice married, first to Gertrude Wells, with whom he had three daughters, and later to Dorothy Bartlett.
