Painter Albert Venner (born DeWar) was born in London, England on September 14th, 1881.  As a young man, he served as a Private and Corporal in Queen Victoria's Lancer Regiment.  Venner served in Cairo, Malta and Gibraltar, and later recalled that Winston Churchill, a colonel, had served with him.

He immigrated to the United States in 1904, arriving on a steamship.  Venner later remembered:

" I was a bad boy who hated school. When a chum of mine got a job on a steamer, I swapped places with him and shipped out. I love the sea."

He found work as a color printer and supervised the printing of the first four color theater program in New York City in 1905.  In 1914, Venner became a US citizen.   ...  Displaying 750 of 2912 characters.
