Abstract:

Owen Biddle, scientist and merchant, served as Deputy Forage Master General during the Revolution. He became a member of the Free Quakers, but in 1783 was reinstated in Philadelphia Monthly Meeting and helped in the establishment of Westtown School (1799). Clement Biddle (1778-1856) was a sugar refiner in Philadelphia who was active in Quaker philanthropic work. Clement M. Biddle (1838-1902), grandson of Clement Biddle, worked in the family hardware firm until 1873 when he became involved with the Centennial Exposition of 1876. He had a special interest in Quaker education, serving on the Swarthmore College Board of Managers from 1874-1894 and participating in the Committee on Education of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting (Hicksite). Clement Miller Biddle (1876-1959) was active in civic and philanthropic affairs in New York; Biddle was president of Biddle Manufacturing Company and served on the Board of Managers of Swarthmore College from 1927-1950. Lucy Biddle Lewis (1861-1941) was the oldest child of Clement M. Biddle (1838-1902). She was active in Quaker postwar relief work and the peace movement, serving on the American Friends Service Committee, as National Chairman of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, and from 1908-1941, on the Board of Managers of Swarthmore College.
