Tyner E. Lowe, M. D.

Dr. Tyner E. Lowe, of Greenfield, one of the best-known physicians in Hancock county, president of the school board of his home city, and otherwise actively identified with the social and cultural movements of that city, is a native Hoosier and has lived in this state all his life, with the exception of the time spent in medical college at St. Louis. He was born in Hamilton county, Indiana, November 19, 1877, son of John and Elizabeth Jane Lowe, the former of whom, also a native of Indian, was born in Hamilton county on May 24, 1842, and the latter, in Franklin county, Ohio, July 15, 1851.

Doctor Lowe was well equipped by study for the practice of the profession to which he has brought honor during the years of his active practice at Greenfield. Upon completing the course in the schools of his native county, he taught school for six years and then entered the Homeopathic Medical College at St. Louis, and was graduated with honors from that excellent institution in 1908, with the degree of Doctor of Medicine. Immediately following his graduation Doctor Lowe opened an office for the practice of his profession at Greenfield, and has ever since been located there, long having been recognized as one of the leading physicians of that part of the state. Not only has Doctor Lowe given the most studious consideration to the exacting duties of his profession, but he has given thoughtful attention to the social and civic affairs of his home community and has done his part as a good citizen in the promotion of all movements having to do with the advancement of the best interests of the people of Greenfield and of Hancock county, his services as president of the school board of Greenfield having proved of particular value to the community at large. Doctor Lowe is a Democrat and ever since locating at Greenfield has given close attention to local political affairs. He is a member of the Indiana Institute of Homeopathy and of the American Institute of Homeopathy and has for years taken an active interest in the deliberation of these bodies. He also is a member of the local lodge of the Knights of Pythias and of the Modern Woodmen of America, and in the affairs of these latter organizations takes a warm interest.

On June 17, 1909, the year following the beginning of his practice in Greenfield, Doctor Lowe was united in marriage to Maybelle Smith, who was born in Jackson township, this county, daughter of Dr. H. B. Smith, and to this union has been born one son, Benton Smith Lowe, born on July 15, 1913. Mrs. Lowe is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church and the doctor is a member of the Primitive Baptist church, both taking a warm interest not only in local church affairs, but in all proper social and cultural activities in their home community, useful laborers in behalf of all measures designed to advance the common welfare hereabout.
