Died at home on January 13, 2013, in Arlington, Virginia. A New York City native, he was the son of John and Eileen Lowry. He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War.

A specialist in American literature of the 1920s and 1930s, he also taught at Mary Washington College, Georgetown University, and Catholic University. Dr. Lowry was a devoted World War II buff and scale modeler, loved Big Band music, and was a friend of cats everywhere. He is survived by his wife, Susan, and his sons Robert and Richard, and will be missed by his daughter-in-law, Vanessa. A memorial service will be held at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 5533 16th St N, Arlington, Va., on Saturday, January 19, at 11 a.m.
