-- Socialite Biddle Dies at Age 80 --
Livingston Ludlow Biddle Sr., 80, one of the last members of the Philadelphia high society flourishing at the end of the century, died yesterday [July 7, 1959] in suburban Bryn Mawr [Pennsylvania], His health had been deteriorating for the past five years.
A product of two historic Philadelphia families - the Biddles and the Drexels -- he was the son of the late Edward Biddle and Emilie Drexel Biddle. Biddle was considered quiet and restrained. He became interested in the arts and tried his hand at some of them. A volume of his poetry, "The Understanding Hills," was published in 1916.
Biddle attended St. Paul's School, in Concord, N.H., and was graduated from Princeton University in 1900. For many years he was a trustee of Drexel Institute, Philadelphia.
Besides his widow he is survived by two sons, Livingston L. Biddle Jr., a novelist, and Ernest L. Biddle, a portrait painter. Services will be held at 4 p.m. Friday in the Church of the Redeemer, Bryn Mawr.
