Wilfred Cyr was from Amesbury, Massachusetts, where he was born in 1889 and lived all his life. He was a cripple, only having use of his head and neck, wrist and hands and ankles. Since he could not lift his arms, he used his wrists to move his hands across his work. W.R. Cyr also had a brother Cyril Cyr who was an artist and was afflicted with the same illness.
