    • PROVIDENCE --- Charles Richard Steedman, 95, of Angell Street, a retired textile executive, died Thursday at home. He was the husband of the late Elsie (Jackson) Steedman.

      Born in San Francsico, Calif., a son of the late Charles J. and Mary B. (Lippitt) Steedman, he lived in Providence for most of his life and was a lifelong summer resident of York Harbor, Maine.

      Mr. Steedman was a direct descendant of two Rhode Island Governors, Henry Lippitt and Charles Warren Lippitt. His mother was the first Rhode Island woman to serve on the Republican National Committee.

      He was a graduate of Harvard College in 1920. He was a member of the Harvard Club of New York, and a past president of the Harvard Club of Rhode Island.

      He was associated with the former Manville-Jenckes Corpoartion, which at one time owned the largest integrated textile mill in the country, for 25 years, serving as its president when its mill closed in 1945. He then served in an executive capacity with Synthetic Yarns, Inc. until retiring.

      He was an Army veteran of World War II, 2nd Lt. in the Army Air Service.

      Among his civic activities he was secretary of Rhode Island Hospital from 1956 to 1974, former chairman of the Rhode Island Building Authority, and a former board member of the Providence Chapter of the American Red Cross.

      He was past president of the Agawam Hunt, and was instrumental in the construction of its indoor tennis courts. He was a member of the Hope Club, the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, the Providence Athenaeum, the Providence Community Concert Association, the Rhode ISland Historical Society, the Sons of the American Revolution, the York Harbor Reading Room, the Agamenticus Yacht Club, the York Golf and Tennis Club, the Thistle and Fleur-de-Lis, and the First Unitarian Church. He was a life member of the Huguenot Society of South Carolina.

      He leaves two sons, Charles Steedman of Ann Arbor, Mich., Christopher L. Steedman of York Harbor, Maine, and three grandchildren.

      A Memorial service will be held tomorrow at 12 noon at the First Unitarian Church, Benefit and Benevolent Streets.
