Foxe was born in Oxford, Ohio, to Charles Aldrich Fox, originally of Flint, Michigan, and Eva May Herron. His older half sister was Ethel May Fox, a music teacher, born in Michigan to Charles Aldrich Fox and Katie Eldridge. Always very private about his own early history, he was educated at Ohio State University. He left for New York City as a young man, joined a stock company and became a successful stage star, being on the stage with Douglas Fairbanks before going into films. Foxe was a cousin of the stage actor Robert T. Haines.

He appeared in some films in New York City and lived at the Lambs Club in the early 1920s at 130 West 44th Street in New York City but moved to California in 1922 and signed a contract with Fox Film Corporation. He married Gladys Borum in 1923 and later legally adopted her son Chester E. Foxe.

He was one of the founders of Black-Foxe Military Institute, a military school for boys in Hollywood, in 1928. He died in Los Angeles, California.


Foxe acted in 148 films between 1912 and 1946.
