William Crother Fitler was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1857. He specialized in American landscapes. His wife Mrs. W.C. Fitler, was the famous painter who used the name of a man (Claude Raguet Hirst) to sign her pictures. She did this so she would not have the female stigma that followed women painters of her time.

C.W. Fitler painted though out the Northeast and became very fluid in the Watercolor medium. His studio was located in New York City.
