Harry Dorr (1872-1950) was born in Kettering, the son of a sign writer. He spent most of his early years in London. He returned to Kettering and was encouraged to draw by Walter Bonner Gash. He toured France and Belgium, painting landscapes and seascapes in oil and watercolour. He was a founder member of the Kettering and District Art Society (alongside Gash) and the Northampton Town and County Art Society. The Alfred East Art Gallery in Kettering has four of his paintings in its permanent collection.
