Sample Autograph Signature: Lowell Thomas

Preeminent American radio commentator, explorer, author and journalist. After graduating from college he made the first of innumerable trips to various parts of the world, starting with Alaska, which in 1915 was then a largely unknown territory to most Americans. Upon his return, he gave lectures about his trip, which were so popular that they earned him a commission from Woodrow Wilson to make an on-the-scene historical record of World War I. This work lead to many important contacts, especially with General Edmund Allenby and Col. T. E. Lawrence, which became the basis of another very successful lecture series when he came back home and really helped launch his career. In 1924, he published his first, and most popular book, With Lawrence in Arabia. In 1930 he went to work for Columbia Broadcasting System and began a radio career that spanned more than 40 years. In 1935 he filmed and narrated the first of many travelogues for 20th Century-Fox. During WW2 he traveled to virtually all the war zones, and broadcast vivid reports. In 1949, at the invitation of the Dalai Lama, he traveled to Tibet, becoming one of the first Americans ever to so. Content provided by: H G Books. Throughout his long and adventurous career Lowell Thomas wrote over 60 books and articles about his experiences and the many places he had been, which are now fascinating glimpses of a world that no longer exists.
