Profile

Wisden obituary
Tom Lowry, who died at Hastings, New Zealand, on July 20, was born at Wellington, New Zealand, on February 2, 1898. The importance of this fact lies in the tradition that his sole qualification for Somerset in later years was, as P. R. Johnson's had been before him, born at Wellington. He was at school at Christ's College, served in the Royal Flying Corp at the end of World War I and, going up to Cambridge in 1921 made 183 in the Freshmen's match, but neither in that year nor the next did he get his Blue, although in both seasons he did valuable work for Somerset when term was ended. So strong was Cambridge cricket then that, if one looks at the 1921 side, it is impossible to see who could have been left out for him.
