LUDLOW, Noah Miller, actor, born in New York city, 4 July, 1795 ; died in St. Louis, Missouri, 9 January, 1886. He began his theatrical career in the melodrama of "The Two Thieves," shortly afterward joining, at Albany, New York, under Alexander Drake, the first company that undertook a tour of the western states. Their first performance was at Olean, New York, where they acted by candle-light in a barn, and afterward, descending the Alleghany in a flatboat, they played in the small settlements on the bank of Mississippi river as far as New Orleans, where they arrived in 1817. He took the first regular dramatic company to St. Louis in 1819, and, merging a rival company into his own the next year, presented a series of standard dramas. He associated himself with Sol Smith and the Field brothers in 1834, and after a partnership of twenty years retired, appearing subsequently only in benefit performances. He published his memoirs under the title of "Dramatic Life as I found It" (St. Louis, 1880).
