Arthur Franklin Harlow is noted by Davenports and other sources as an artist active in Salem, Massachusetts in the early 20th Century.
Further research indicates that he was the subject of the famous miniature portrait bearing that name by Boston artist Laura Hills Coombs 1859-1952. Other references reveal that in 1915 he was a member of the Committee on Fine Arts of the Essex Institute in Salem, Massachusetts, and in 1913 a member of the Society of Colonial Wars in Boston. There are indications of an association with Salem, Massachusetts, artist Frank Weston Benson 1862-1951, and with The Guild of Boston Artists, which was started in 1914.
