Laing, Arthur

Laing, Arthur (?)

The only work of Arthur Laing’s for the Federal Arts Project was a six ft. by four ft. Air Raid Warden Chart done in oil in New Haven for the Hartford State Defense Council in 1941. Otherwise nothing is known. There were an Arthur and Marie Laing in Chester but Arthur’s obituary does not mention his artistic skills. Marie, on the other hand, was an artist. There is not enough evidence to connect the two Laings.
