He received his doctorate in psychology from Columbia University. He taught at Indiana University and later at Florida State University.[2]

He married Luella Dorothy Agger of Indianapolis in December 1920 and had two children, Donald Agger Kellogg and Shirley Mae Kellogg.

Winthrop Kellogg's study The Ape and the Child involved his raising a chimpanzee infant, Gua, along with his own son for a period of 9 months, and reported on their comparative behaviors and development. He is also known for studies of echolocation in porpoises and humans.[3]

The work of Kellogg started James Deese on his distinguished career, and, in respect to this renowned professor, he wrote a Memoriam for Winthrop Niles Kellogg.
