Edgar Doctor is known to have a photographic memory, which has been an asset in remembering images and landscapes seen through his many travels and encounters. His close association with the late National Artist Vicente Manansala constituted a remarkable education in itself. As a young man, Doctor won first prize in the Shell National Students Art Competition in 1964, and Grand Prize at the AAP Art Competition in 1972.
