John Hartley Torrison studied art and religion at Wagner College, the New School, and the California College of Arts and Crafts. He has worked as a studio potter, art teacher, sailmaker for Pete Seeger’s Clearwater and for thirty years as a cabinetmaker. John lives with his wife Christine in Westbrook, CT near all of their grandchildren: Hartley, Skye, Sven, Isabella and Shiloh. His interest in genealogy and American history began a thirteen-year journey to discover the lost details of his uncle’s WWII military service. That search brought clarity and honor to his family and to all the crew’s families.
