Biography

Charlotte Louise Woodbridge (C. Louise Woodbridge, Louise Woodbridge), born in China November 30, 1887, was a composer, organist, and music instructor. She graduated with honors in 1915 from the New England Conservatory of Music where she studied under George W. Chadwick and received a scholarship to study composition with him. She later returned to China to teach music and the Bible. After teaching in China, she moved to Pasadena, California and for over forty years composed works for organ, piano, violin, and voice; served as an organist in several churches; and taught. Many of her musical compositions are of a religious nature; her parents Samuel Isett Woodbridge and Jeanie Wilson Woodrow, first cousin of President Woodrow Wilson, were missionaries. Woodbridge died on May 2, 1980 in Los Angeles.
