Notice biographique

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.
