M. Peter Keane, 103

By James Lomuscio

M. Peter Keane of Westport, who died at 103 on Friday, Feb. 7,  has been described as an artist who loved music and film, someone who went from recording bird songs at Cornell to filming iconic scenes in “The Wizard of Oz,” “Gone With the Wind” and “The Adventures of Robin Hood.” Image

Keane was also “the baby of the family,” his wife, Elisabeth Keane, said today, one of four siblings whose longevity has been the subject of scientific study.

Keane’s older sister was Helen Faith Keane Reichert of Westport and New York City. She died in 2011 at the age of 109 “just a few weeks shy of her 110th birthday on Nov. 11,” Elisabeth said. (See WestportNow Sept. 27, 2011)

Keane’s older brother Irving Kahn “is 108 and still doing well,” she added. Irving recently stepped down as chairman of Kahn Bros., a New York City investment firm. Unlike his siblings, children of Polish-Jewish immigrants, Irving never changed his family name.
