Hal Harold Longmore Burrows
(Salt Lake City, 1889 - 1965)
Harold "Hal" Longmore Burrows, of Salt Lake City, New York City, and Manhassett on Long Island, was a close associate of Mahonri Young (q.v.), Waldo Midgley (q.v.), John Held Jr. (q.v.), Taylor Woolley (q.v.), Clyde and Lawrence Squires (q.v.), and others of a crowd of young Utahans who went off to seek their fortunes in the arts elsewhere. Taking his first formal art lessons in the East, Burrows was at the New York School of Art (1907-9_ and the Art Students League (1912). Studying under "Hon" Young, Robert Henri, and Walt Kuhn (1909-12), the artist became particularly skilled in watercolor. Burrows joined the service during World War I as a staff artist for the original Stars and Stripes newspaper in Paris, won a citation for his work there, and returned to New York to eventually find a career-long work as an art director for Metro-Golden Mayer (1922-58). Burrows' work was represented in many New York City private collections and in Utah in the Alice Art Collection. There were one-man shows for this successful Long Island artist at Harlow-McDonald Galleries (1928) and the Grand Central Art Galleries (1945).
