James Lowson

(1866 - 1935)

A doctor formerly in the Hong Kong civil service, James Lowson published his paper “Sensations in Drowning” in 1903 in The Edinburgh Medical Journal—it appeared after “Syphilis and Life Assurance” by Byrom Bramwell and before “Softening About the Right Calcarine Fissure, Associated with Left Hemianopia” by J. Arthur Perdrau—and concluded his article with the note, “The personal character of this narrative must be my apology for the frequent use of the first personal pronoun.”
