Lowman Helps Less Fortunate In Times Of Crisis

Monday, July 12, 1999
According to the International Hall of Fame Committee, the recipient of the 1999 Humanitarian Award must possess qualities such as contributions to the well being of a broad spectrum of the world population and a demonstration of a rapid response to world humanitarian efforts or appeals in times of emergency. George F. Lowman, chairman and CEO of Farrell Lines more than adequately exemplifies these qualities since becoming chairman of the board with the company in 1978, and chief executive officer isnce 1979. Active on both the East and West Coasts of Africa, Farrell Lines operates major runs of relief supplies in the Black, Adriatic and Mediterranean Seas. It is because of Lowman's generosity that this program continues to run successfully in bringing aid in times of crisis. Supplying such necessities as food, medical supplies and emergency tenting, Farrell has opened its entire fleet to meet the needs of those less fortunate. Lowman received both his undergraduate and law degree from Harvard University. A Fellow, Captain and Honorary Member of the American Bar Association since 1957, he was the senior partner in the Stamford, Conn. law firm of Cummins & Lockwood and president of the city's Bar Association from 1963-1964. Before assuming his current position, Lowman also held a career in the armed forces. A veteran of World War Two, Lowman was enlisted in 1942 with the rank S/Sgt., eventually earning the title of Lt.Col that same year. Active in combat assignment of the famed D-Day invasion in Southern France, the highly-decorated officer held his title of Lt. Col., in the U.S. Army Reserve until his retirement from the armed forces in 1970. Lowman, a three-time inductee into the Hall off Fame, "was pleased to receive the Humanitarian Award and was very honored to be recognized by the Association."
