Brown tones portrait


The subject probably was Edward "Ash" Parsons of Towanda, Pa., who was born in 1916 and died in 1991. Parsons worked at the Towanda Daily Review for 47 years, beginning in 1934. Apparently he was popular as this portrait was done fairly early in his career. According to his obituary, Parsons "was an active member of the Bradford County Republican Party, was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Towanda and was involved in the Masonic Lodge and the Towanda Elks." The artist was Hanlon Riley.
