Leven W. Luckett hailed from Loudon County, Virginia. He entered Dickinson as a sophomore in the fall of 1855. He stayed only one year, however, and does not appear in the catalogue for 1856. While a student, Luckett was a member of the Belles Lettres Literary Society. Evidence indicates that he subsequently attended the University of Virginia.

Luckett entered the Confederate States Army, most likely in the early summer of 1861. He served as a private in Company D, 8th Virginia Infantry. He was wounded on June 27, 1862 at Gaines Mill, Virginia and died two days later.
