From Builders Editor, Stephen Hall, March 9, 2010. —

Nephew of Samuel Clemons by marriage, president of Coal co. and treasurer of the Elmira Chamber of Commerce. Robert Hope-Jones installed an organ at the church where Langdon was a member. Langdon was impressed by the organ, and when he learned Hope-Jones wished to form his own company, he formed a corporation, and raised the capital. He served as president and treasurer initially, later stepping down from president when Robert Pier Elliott joined the company, yielding the title to Elliott. When Hope-Jones Organ Company failed in 1910, Langdon had lost a considerable sum due to Hope-Jones' stubborn perfectionism and poor business skills.
