Artist. Peter Hurd was a painter of murals, illustrations, portraits and paintings. He was commissioned to paint the portrait of President Lyndon. B. Johnson. Hurd later returned the commission fee of $60,000.00 as the President did not like the artwork. Hurd created many other successful commissions. He died from pneumonia and complications due to Alzheimers Disease. He was cremated, with part of his ashes scattered and the remainder of his cremains buried at his homeplace, 'Sentinel Ranch,' near San Patricio, New Mexico. (bio: A. Burtrum-Stanley)

A strong supporter of New Mexico Military Institute. Has a street in Albuquerque named after him.
