Right Worshipful Brother James L. Lowman was born in Fairway, Kansas and grew up in both Kansas and Missouri. He currently resides in Independence, Missouri. James attended Wentworth Military Academy in Lexington, MO for High School and Junior College, and later attended Rockhurst College.
He worked in Radio in the Kansas City area on WDAF 61 Country and later traveled around the world setting up radio stations with radio automation systems out of Quincy, Illinois. He later returned to Kansas City to become the Director of Information Technology (IT) for Entercom Radio. After spending many years in the Radio Business James started and still runs an IT Support company out of Kansas City, though he still participates in Kansas City radio events.
RWB Lowman was initiated, passed, and raised in Kansas City Lodge No 220 and then became a multiple member in Swope Park Lodge No. 617 and Ivanhoe Lodge No. 446. James has served his three lodges as Worshipful Master at Ivanhoe Lodge No. 466 (2013-2014), Kansas City Lodge No. 220 (2014-2015), and Swope Park Lodge No. 617 (2015-2016)
RWB Lowman was appointed Grand Pursuivant of the Grand Lodge of Missouri by MWB Richard L. Smith in May 2017. Then again for the 2017-2018 Masonic year by MWB Ronald D Jones. He is also a member of the Scottish Rite Valley of Guthrie in Guthrie, Oklahoma. He also Serves as President of the Ivanhoe Masonic Temple Building Board, and he is and Treasurer of Swope Park Masonic Temple Building Board. Currently he serves as Chairman of the Chartered Lodges grand lodge committee under MWB Ronald D Jones.
He holds Subdivision III and Subdivision IV-I Ritual cards, and is a 212º recipient as well as being an Honorary Past Master of the Grand Lodge of Oklahoma.
He is also a Chapter Dad and Scribe in “Mother Chapter” Order of DeMolay in Kansas City, MO.
The only regret James states he has about Missouri Masonry is that he did not join sooner. If it hadn’t had been for many influential Brothers who showed him the way towards Light, and helped him see it, he never would have been able to become the Mason he is today.
