Kathryn Abbe, who began her professional career as a freelance photographer in 1944 when few women were in the field, died at home in Brookville on Jan. 18. She was 94 and had been ill for only a week.
Mrs. Abbe and her identical twin sister, Frances, were born to Francis and Kathryn McLaughlin in Brooklyn on Sept. 22, 1919. They grew up in Wallingford, Conn. A Voightlander camera they received as a high school graduation present sparked their lifelong passion for photography. She and her sister enrolled at Pratt Institute in the late 1930s, studying painting with Reginald Marsh, but an elective course in photography proved decisive.
