Daniel Ozro Smith Lowell was born in East Denmark, Oxford County, Maine, to Daniel Lowell, a Farmer, and Mary A. Smith Lowell who was a daughter of his sister, Mary Lowell Smith. He was a member of the Class of 1874 at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. He studied medicine, travelled in Europe, was employed as a Physician for a time, became a Teacher, then a Master, and from 1909 to 1921 was Headmaster at the Roxbury Latin School on Kearsarge Avenue off of Winthrop Street in Roxbury. During his career he wrote “Jason's Quest”" and in 1896 edited the Roger de Coverly Papers. In 1896 he journeyed abroad and then lectured on his travels. For years and years his initials of D. O. S. L. were written in chalk on blackboards at the Roxbury Latin School near vacation time and stood for “Days of School Left.” [note: he lived for many years at 76 Alban Street, Dorchester.] On March 11, 1928, Daniel Ozro Smith Lowell died from Arteriosclerosis and Chronic Endocarditis at the age of 76 years, 11 months and 18 days. He resided at 42 Orient Street in Malden in Middlesex County. A. N. Ward and Son were the undertakers, and he was interred on March 14, 1928.
