Lang is a native of New Hampshire, his parents coming to Reading from Dover when he was but two years of age; and here is where was laid the foundation of his subsequent life.
Lang is general manager, treasurer, and one of the directors of this great corporation; and the able manner in which its affairs are conducted is ample evidence that the seed sown in early life did not fall upon barren ground.
Lang has never found opportunity to actively participate in town affairs; consequently he has never held public office, although during his thirty-two years' residence in Reading he was by no means disinterested in the town's affairs, and all public measures looking to its advancement and welfare always received substantial recognition and support from him.
