"Monroe P. Killy was born on October 28, 1910, in Minneapolis, where he spent most of his life. He worked briefly as an electrician and then in 1936 was hired by the local Eastman Kodak store. During World War II, he was in the U.S. Army, but returned to his old job afterwards, staying there until 1972. He was a salesman for another photographic firm for a few years and then retired in 1977." Via Luminous-Lint.com
The Minnesota Historical Society received a grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation in 2000 to preserve five of Killy's films (ca. 1935-1947) documenting Minnesota's Ojibwe people.
