Both men were born in Grand Rapids, 1871 and 1893. Edward was an Art Critic and wrote for the Grand Rapids Herald and The New York Times. They also had a sister who's name I do not know.I am looking for anyone who remembers them, for stories or pictures of them as children. Foster was an artist who painted, sculpted and wrote Haiku. Foster was also the first man to cross Lake Michigan at its widest point in a canoe in the early 1920's He traveled Europe with Mathias Alten and was the subject in at least one of his paintings. Foster also worked on the WPA project and was a Veteran to both World Wars in the navy.If you know anyone with Fosters work or know anything about his sister, please contact Granddaughter who is researching for family Biography. Thanks for your time.
