Following is a testimonial from one of his students, artist Caroline Edlund:At the age of 11, I began painting lessons with C. Gordon Harris. He was my first painting teacher and one of three most influential instructors in developing my skills as a painter. He was an amicable, pleasant man. He painted on location from early April through October. After his passing, a movement was begun to honor his memory. A painting was purchased and presented to the Lincoln Town Hall in his memory.
