Mr. David W. Low
Palmerston N., This Day.
The death has occurred of Mr. David W. Low, of Palmerston North, who is remembered chiefly because of his educational activities, a six years' association with the City Council, and his devotion to the work of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church.

He was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, and came to New Zealand at the age of four years. He was educated at Wanganui, and his first headmastership was at Fordell in 1896. He went to Sanson in 1893, Waverley in 1898, and the College Street School, Palmerston North, in 1904, and held that position until he retired in 1924. He was later a member of the Wanganui Education Board, and in 1923 president of the New Zealand Educational Institute. He served on the City Council from 1925 to 1931 and for 25 years was session clerk at St. Andrew's Church. He is survived by his widow, three sons, and two daughters. One son [Eric Leslie Low] was killed in 1914-18 in France.
