Mrs. Edwards was my first "boss" back in 1967 when I joined Motown as their first full-time Art Director at the tender age of 19. As head of the Graphic Arts Department ( She ran Gordy Printing before joining Motown) Mrs. Edwards had charge of the "look" of the "Motown Sound." She brought me to Detroit from Washington D.C. to design Motown's record Albums and afforded me the greatest opportunity imaginable. When Motown left Detroit for LA I left Motown for a career in advertising as one of the first black Creative Directors on Madison Avenue. She was a grand lady and an inspiration to generations and generations of talented young artists and musicians. Her legacy will last for as long as the memory of Motown exists in the world of popular music. Rest in God's Grace Mrs. Edwards- Harry Webber, Los Angeles, CA 2011
