Lowell Thomas Autograph



Lowell Jackson Thomas was born April 6, 1892 – died August 29, 1981. Lowell was an American writer, broadcaster, and traveller best known as the man who made Lawrence of Arabia famous. So varied were Thomas’s activities that when it came time for the Library of Congress to catalog his memoirs they were forced to put them in “CT” in their classification – biographies of subjects who don’t fit into any other category. Since 1980, the Explorers Club, which Thomas was a member of, annually presents the Lowell Thomas award to “honor men and women who have distinguished themselves in the field of exploration”. The awards are presented at a yearly dinner to a select group of people having made particular contributions in the specific area chosen to be that year’s focus. Past awardees include Edmund Hillary, Isaac Asimov, David Doubilet, Mary Cleave, Buzz Aldrin and Bertrand Piccard.
