Loring Milton Black Jr. (May 17, 1886 – May 21, 1956) was an American politician and a United States Representative from New York.


Loring was born in New York City on May 17, 1886, a son of Loring M. Black and Elizabeth Black.[1] He attended the public schools of New York City and was a 1903 graduate of Fordham Preparatory School.[1] In 1907, he graduated from Fordham University with a Bachelor of Arts degree.[1] He attended Columbia Law School from 1907 to 1909, was admitted to the bar in 1909, and practiced in New York City.[1]

Black was a member of the New York State Senate (4th D.) in 1911 and 1912.[2] Due to his young age he became known as the "Kid Senator".[3] He was again a member of the State Senate in 1919 and 1920.[2]

Black was elected as a Democrat to the 68th, 69th, 70th, 71st, 72nd and 73rd United States Congresses, holding office from March 4, 1923 to January 3, 1935.[2] Opposing prohibition, he was one of the leaders of the "wet bloc" in Congress.[2] Black served as chairman of the Committee on Claims in the 72nd and 73rd Congresses.[2]

After leaving Congress, Black resumed the practice of law in New York City and Washington, D.C.[2] He died of a heart attack on May 21, 1956, while shopping in a Washington, D.C. drugstore.[4] He was buried at Fort Lincoln Cemetery in Brentwood, Maryland.[2]


In 1913, Black married Beatrice Marie Eddy.[5] Their children included Loring M., Elizabeth V., Jeanne, and John E. The Blacks later divorced, and Loring Black's second wife was Laura Spencer.
