Historia biográfica

A.R.M. Lower was born at Barrie, Ontario, on August 12, 1889. In the fall of 1907, Lower took a teacher-training course, and in second term obtained a teaching job. In the fall of 1909, he registered in the Faculty of Education of the University of Toronto, and in 1910 enrolled in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Toronto. In the spring of 1916, Lower joined the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve. Returning home in 1919, Lower began work as Assistant Chairman of the Board of Historical Publications. While working with the Board of Historical publications, Lower began and completed his M.A. degree in History from University of Toronto, receiving his degree in 1923. He received his A.M. from Harvard in 1926, and his doctorate in 1929. During his stay at Harvard, he was an instructor in History at Tufts College, Mass., 1926-27, and an Instructor and Tutor in History at Harvard University, 1927-29. In 1929 Lower moved to Winnipeg where he had been offered the departmental headship in Wesley (later United) College. He remained at United College until 1947, when he came to Queen's University as Douglas Professor of History and remained there until his retirement from active teaching at Queen's at the end of the 1958-59 sessions. A member of the Canadian Historical Association, having been its President in 1943, and of the Civil Liberties Association in Winnipeg, of which he was president in 1940-41, he also was an active member of the Canadian Institute of International Affairs. During 1961-62, he was President of the Royal Society of Canada. He has been the recipient of the Tyrell Medal from the Royal Society of Canada in 1947, of the Governor General's medal from the Canadian Authors' Association in 1947 and 1955, and of an IODE award in 1947.
