Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

A stage ingenue of some importance who had appeared in the original Broadway version of Ben Hur, brunette Louise Huff became a star with the pioneer Lubin Mfg. Company of Philadelphia. In scores of one- and two-reel melodramas and Westerns from the very early 1910s, Huff was especially popular in tandem with Edgar Jones, whom she married. Together, they relocated to California in the mid-1910s but her career was already on the wane and she retired in 1922. Her sister, Justina Huff, was also a Lubin star.
