Jo Landor (1918-2001)

A native of Madera in the San Joaquin Valley, Mrs. Landor studied art at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, where she was a student of her husband-to-be, Walter Landor. They were married for 55 years, until his death in 1995.

Together they formed Landor Associates, a firm that later designed the familiar logos for Coca-Cola, General Electric, Shell Oil, British Airways, Dole and General Motors' Saturn Corp.

In addition to her talent as a painter, Mrs. Landor served for more than 50 years as the artistic director for the Anna Halprin Dancer's Workshop, helping design the scenery and costumes worn by the dancers.
