This is the story of my great grandfather, and well known artist, Edward M. Langley. His life consisted of many adventures and accomplishments, some of which have become notable as time has gone on. It is a story I feel deserves to be shared.MoreThis is the story of my great grandfather, and well known artist, Edward M. Langley. His life consisted of many adventures and accomplishments, some of which have become notable as time has gone on. It is a story I feel deserves to be shared.Abandoned at seven with his two sisters in a rattle-pan shack outside of Sydney Harbor in Australia, Edward lived a life guided by the great inner light of the divine hand.This is the story of the American Dream, leaving a life of prestige and dignity to sail to the New World in order to gain a fortune, and one not necessarily of a monetary origin, but a spiritual one as well.He did all of this with such enthusiasm and unrelenting curiosity and goodwill, that I believe his type of life story is the catalyst for a thing such as the American dream to exist. While his talent and will provided the means of his experience, his guide was often a soft whisper of an enlightened mind. Whether he was navigating the Chattahoochee, by building a canoe out of scrap cigar-box cedar to paddle to the gulf from Atlanta, or designing sets in Hollywood for Douglas Fairbanks, every experience of his life inspires and awes. The sheer breadth of his experience is one seldom seen.His is a true story of Americana.
