Thomas, Lowell (Jackson)

born April 6, 1892, Woodington, Ohio, U.S.
died Aug. 29, 1981, Pawling, N.Y.

U.S. radio commentator, journalist, and author.

A war correspondent in Europe and the Middle East while in his 20s, Thomas helped make T.E. Lawrence famous with his exclusive coverage and later with the book With Lawrence in Arabia (1924). He was a preeminent broadcaster with CBS from 1930; his radio nightly news was an American institution for nearly two generations, and he appeared on television from its earliest days. Out of his lifelong globetrotting came lectures, travelogues, and more than 50 books of adventure and comment, including Kabluk of the Eskimo (1932) and The Seven Wonders of the World (1956).
