Frank Kellum (1858-1930) was a decoy carver from Babylon, New York.
Kellum was a house painter and carpenter on Long Island, but also a decoy carver and guide on the Great South Bay of Long Island. He was a well known member of the Wa-Wa-Yanda Hunt Club, active between the 1870s and 1930s on Captree Island. It was there that he employed his skills as a hunter and carver for several years. Some members of the club were so impressed with Kellum’s skills that they sent him to New York City to study art. This experience did not last long as he soon returned to the Great South Bay to continue carving decoys, as he knew the trade. He made superb antique duck as well as snipe decoys, and is among the best of regional New York carvers.
