This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following is from Peter Kostoulakos, AOA, NEAA:  Fine Art Consultant, www.pkart.com

Emmet Edwin Myers (1888-1937)

Emmet Edwin Myers — painter, teacher, muralist, and lecturer — was born in Edinburgh, OH in 1888 and died in 1937, probably in Huntington, WV, his last listed address (1934).  Myers attended Northern Ohio University, Mount Union College, and the Cincinnati Academy of Fine Art in the 1880s.  Later, Myers studied at the University of Pittsburg, Harvard, and New York University.  For a short time, before settling in Huntington in the early 1900s, Myers resided in Ravenna, OH.  He was a member of the Western Art Association, North Pearl Street, Ellensburg, WV and American Federation of Arts.

Myers painted murals for Huntington High School and the Delphian Society, The Coming of Arthur, 1927 and Passing of Arthur, 1928 are two super sized paintings in the collection of the Huntington High Renaissance Center.  According to Dave Lavender of The Herald-Dispatch, the two paintings were removed from the old Huntington High School after it closed and they were placed at the entrance to the Jean Carlo Stephenson Auditorium at City Hall.  The City of Huntington Foundation bought the paintings from the Cabell County Board of Education for $25 after vandalism at the old high school threatened the paintings that were hanging high on opposite walls of the theater’s stage.  The paintings were restored and re framed before placed at the Center.

From 1902 to 1934, Myers chaired the art department at Marshall College in Huntington.  Upon retirement from Marshall, he was active for a brief time, with the Allied Artists of West Virginia in Charleston and maintained a summer art colony for many years in Monterey, VA.
