Bigelow, Poultney, 1855-1954

Hide Profile

Poultney Bigelow (b. September 10, 1855, New York City-d. May 28, 1954, Malden-on-Hudson, New York), was the son of John Bigelow, American Ambassador to France under Abraham Lincoln. He grew up in France, and also in Germany, where he became friends with Prince William, later emperor of Germany. Bigelow studied at Yale University, and began practicing law, but was more interested in politics and writing. He is perhaps best remembered as a journalist. He was editor of Outing magazine and later covered the Spanish-American war in the Philippines. Bigelow travelled extensively, and numbered among his correspondents some of the best-known figures in Europe and America. He died in 1954 at the age of 98 at his home in Malden-on-Hudson, New York.
