Description: 

As described on the KCPL website, "Courtney S. Turner was an Atchison businessman and philanthropist. Before he died in 1986, he pledged to use his financial resources to help Atchison and other communities, and the Courtney S. Turner Charitable Trust was established. In the recent past, the trust has benefited Veterans Memorial Park in Atchison, Northeast Kansas Technical College, the Atchison County Historical Society, and the Atchison Santa Fe Depot."

In this three quarter length portrait, Turner is dressed in a navy with a white shirt and matching pocket square. His tie is blue and yellow striped. The background of this portrait is rich in russet tones of red and yellow with some hint of green. One of the most striking elements of this portrait is the blue of Turner's eyes.
