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.
RWB Lowman attended Wentworth Military Academy in Lexington, MO for High School and Junior College, and later attended Rockhurst College.
RWB Lowman worked in Radio in the Kansas City area on WDAF 61 Country and later traveled the world setting up radio station with radio automation systems out of Quincy, Illinois.
RWB Lowman later returned to Kansas City to become Director of IT for Entercom (now Audacy) radio. After many years in the radio industry James started and still runs an IT Tech 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. He became a dual member in Swope Park Lodge No 617, and Ivanhoe Lodge No. 446.
RWB Lowman has served his three lodges as Worshipful Master at Ivanhoe Lodge No 466 2013-2014, Kansas City Lodge No 220 2014-2015, and finally Swope Park Lodge No 617 2015-2016 (He was a glutton for punishment doing three years back to back).
RWB Lowman was appointed twice a Grand Pursuivant of the Grand Lodge of Missouri by MW Richard L. Smith in 2017. Then again by MW Ronald D. Jones for the 2017-2018 masonic year.
RWB Lowman is also a member of the Scottish Rite, Shrine, and York Rite. He has served as President of two Masonic Temple Building Boards. He holds Sub III and Sub IV-I cards, and is a 212º recipient as well as being an Honorary Past Master of the Grand Lodge of Oklahoma. He also serves as the Chapter Dad and Scribe in “Mother Chapter” Order of DeMolay in Kansas City, MO.
The only thing RWB Lowman regrets about Missouri Masonry is that he did not listen to the many many Masons he knows around the United States who were constantly pushing and asking him when he was going to join the craft, and that he did not do it sooner. If it hadn’t had been for the influential masons who showed him the way towards the light, and helped him see the light, he never would have been able to become the Man and the Mason he is today.
