Through his interpretative art, men like POE, LONGFELLOW, TENNYSON, STEVENSON, BRET HARTE, HUGO, KIPLING, WHITMAN, THACKERAY, CARLYLE, RILEY, F. H. SMITH, BILL NYE, MARK TWAIN, ARTEMUS WARD, JOSH BILLINGS, live again. He gives his audiences visualizations of these men which are startling in their approach to nature. Realizing a demand for the best of literature properly interpreted, he not only brings you face to face with these Literary Celebrities but makes you know them better by giving each a living personality and quoting from their best known works. Dr. Landon is nationally known for his characterizations of literary men and has appeared before approximately 6000 College, School and other audiences from coast to coast in the past 30 years. The motion picture industry claimed his talent in a series of educational pictures and he has had a very successful radio career presenting Moments with Great Writers. Many of the later writers, such as F. Hopkinson Smith, Mark Twain and James Whitcomb Riley, Dr. Landon knew personally. Others, in both England and America, he has learned to know through visits to their former homes and libraries. He has found that the only way to really know these celebrities and receive their inspiration is through personal contact or by studying their lifetime surroundings. With this in mind he has interviewed relatives and close friends of Longfellow, Poe and others, securing intimate touches that are given realistic interpretation.
