In 1912, at age 25, Harvey S. Ladew
inherited a portfolio of assets from his deceased parents that allowed him to
live well off the earnings for the rest of his life. Instead of toiling at a
job, Ladew spent his life doing things he enjoyed. In winter, he foxhunted in
England, Ireland, Italy, and France. He hobnobbed with notable figures of his
era, including the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, T.E. Lawrence (aka Lawrence of
Arabia), Richard Rodgers, Moss Hart, Noël Coward, Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable,
Edna Ferber, and Terence Rattigan. He was a capable artist and famous for his
lavish parties and fine sense of humor.
