- July 30 1961

Provincial Normal School

Marion H. Langridge registered as a school teacher, 1st Class, with the Vancouver School Board in September 1922, after taking training at the Provincial Normal School in Vancouver. She was noted as residing in Vancouver.


"Of pensive thought and aspect pale."
Provincial Normal School Annual class photo, 1921-22

She exhibited her artwork in the annual B.C. Artists exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 1939, from 1941 to 1949, and in 1952. The 1952 City Directory lists her as a school teacher employed by the City.

She showed two paintings in the 1945 British Columbia At Work exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

According to Glenn Woodsworth, Langridge was his English teacher at Magee High School in 1961, where he noted that "My own writing was sharply but kindly criticized by my English teacher, a remarkable woman named Marion Langridge who was active in the B.C. Mountaineering Club in the 1920s."

BC Vital Statistics on-line had no definitive information on the artist as of May 2021.

Apparently she died suddenly while on a trip to England in 1961.
