Family-Placed Death Notice

LOEWY, Laurence Laurence Loewy, the daughter of famed industrial designer Raymond Loewy, died Wednesday at her home in Marietta, Georgia. She was 55. Born in New York and raised in NY, Paris and Los Angeles, she attended the Lycee Francais in New York, Foxcroft High School in Virginia and the University of Southern California. Loewy's professional career included work in television production and journalism. During the 80's she was a writer/producer on numerous projects for Alan Landsburg Productions, Group W and Directions International. As a journalist, Loewy worked at the L.A. bureau of the Associated Press, where she was recognized by AP World for her submission chronicling the 1984 Summer Olympics. She was a reporter for Glendale News Press in Southern California and became City Editor for Ingersoll Publications, winning numerous awards for reporting, deadline writing, editing and layout. Retiring in 1990 to raise her son, Jacque, Loewy became the clearing house for Ramyond Loewy's estate.

Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts as part of American Masterpieces, the exhibition will continue to travel throughout the U.S. thru 2009. As CEO of Loewy Design, she was currently involved in a new gallery, plans for a Raymond Loewy Museum of Modern Design in Manhattan and new Loewy documentary entitled "Raymond Loewy Loved Locomotives."Loewy is survived by her husband, David Hagerman and her son Jacque Loewy, and step-daughter, Catherine Hagerman.
