"Prof. A.M.Low seen by Alfred Wolmark", Science Fantasy Review #1 (15 May 1939)

(October 17, 1888 – September 13, 1956)

Archibald Montgomery Low, a UK engineer and research physicist, self-styled 'Professor' as he held no university chair, worked in many fields, often on guidance systems and rocketry. His lack of focus meant he rarely saw projects to completion.

He wrote popular science books and four SF novels and was a frequent attendee at early conventions. He spoke at the Second British Convention where he was elected president of the Science Fiction Association and was GoH at Eastercon in 1944 although he did not attend 'under military exigiencies'. He was president of the British Interplanetary Society for 15 years.
