Pueblo County, Colorado
Laurence Edwin Langdon

Contributed by Maggie Stuart Zimmerman.

Laurence Edwin Langdon, a prominent representative of the legal profession in Pueblo, is making an excellent record in the position of deputy district attorney. His birth occurred in Sarpy county, Nebraska, on the 11th of August, 1883, but he has spent practically his entire life in Colorado, his parents, John J. and Frances G. (Heron) Langdon, removing to this state in the spring of 1884. His father was engaged in the abstract business in Pueblo for many years but disposed of his interests in that connection in 1917 and has since given his attention to real estate dealing. The period of his residence in the city covers more than a third of a century and he has long been numbered among its successful business men and esteemed citizens. Mr. Langdon of this review has three brothers, one of whom is at present serving his country as a member of the One Hundred and Fifty-ninth Infantry.

Laurence E. Langdon began his education in a parochial school and later continued his studies in the Centennial high school, from which he was graduated in 1902. Subsequently he spent a year in the University of Notre Dame in Indiana and for two years was a student in the University of Michigan, being graduated from the latter institution as a member of the class of 1910. For five years before taking up the study of law, however, he had been associated with his father in the abstract business. In 1911 he was elected city attorney of Pueblo, acting in that capacity for seven months or until November, 1911, when he was appointed deputy district attorney by John W. Davidson, who was serving as district attorney at that time. Throughout the intervening period of seven years he has discharged his duties as deputy in a most commendable and efficient manner, winning an enviable reputation in professional circles.

Mr. Langdon gives his political allegiance to the democratic party, while fraternally he is an Elk and a fourth degree Knight of Columbus. He belongs to the Minnequa Club and the Golf Club and has those qualities which make for personal popularity. Having spent almost his entire life in Colorado, he has witnessed the growth and progress of the state with enthusiastic interest and he is well known as a public-spirited, respected and representative citizen of Pueblo.
