Robert Longhurst

Biography of Robert Longhurst "I will never forget my older brother opening his last gift for Christmas, 1959; I was ten years old. The gift was an eight inch wood carving my father had done of “Prince Valiant,” a character who appeared in the comic section of the Sunday newspaper. That which my father enjoyed as a hobby became the passion of my career." R.L.
