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
