Biographical Note

Frank Orren Lowden was born in 1861 in Sunrise, Minnesota but spent his childhood in Hardin County, Iowa. His father Lorenzo was a blacksmith. Lowden grew up in rural poverty, attending school sporadically when he could put aside his chores on the family farm. By the age of fifteen, he had cobbled together enough knowledge to qualify to teach at a small school in Hubbard, Iowa. He spent the next five years teaching in a one-room schoolhouse and saving up for college, entering the University of Iowa at the age of twenty.

Upon completing his degree, Lowden worked as a high school teacher in order to save up for his continuing education, aspiring to become a lawyer. He spent his spare time learning stenography, which allowed him to quit teaching after a year and accept a job as a law clerk at the prominent Dexter law firm in Chicago in 1886. While still working during the day, he attended evening courses at the Union College of Law (now Northwestern University Law School), completing its two-year program in only one year and graduating as valedictorian in 1887. He passed the bar and began practicing law in Chicago soon afterward, becoming a senior partner in the firm Lowden, Estabrook & Davis in 1898. Lowden maintained his affiliation with Northwestern University long afterward and lectured on federal jurisprudence there 1899-1902. A meeting hall in the law school was later named after him for his service to the university.

In 1896 he married Florence Pullman, daughter of the Pullman railroad car baron, George M. Pullman, whom he had met aboard an ocean liner during a trip to Paris two years earlier. Their wedding was widely covered by the media, due to Florence’s immense wealth and the fact that she had had several elite suitors prior to her engagement to the more humble Lowden. Florence became known for her philanthropic pursuits, among them providing aid to Illinois soldiers during the First World War and later establishing Hilltop, a retreat for sick urban children at the family’s farm. They had one son, George Pullman (1897-?), and three daughters: Florence (1898-1988), Harriet (1900-1987), and Frances (1903-?).

Lowden’s avowal to support his family on his own income, rather than rely on the Pullman fortune was facilitated by his success in law and in business. His excellent reputation as a trial lawyer and his re-organization of the National Biscuit and American Radiator Companies brought him a significant personal fortune. His claim to being a ‘self-made man’ lent him credibility when he entered Republican politics in the late 1890s. Lowden’s earliest Republican political involvement was his work on William McKinley’s successful presidential campaign in 1896. After the election, he was offered the post of First Assistant Postmaster General, which he declined.

Though he never actively served in the military, Lowden was appointed Lieutenant Colonel of the First Regiment Infantry of the Illinois National Guard 1898-1903. This position earned him the title of “Colonel Lowden”, which would be often invoked in his later campaign literature.

In 1900, Lowden was a delegate to the Republican National Convention and in 1904 was a candidate for the Republican nomination for governor. He was defeated by Charles S. Deneen, who went on to become governor. Lowden then represented Illinois’ 13th District in Congress 1906-1911.

In 1916 he once again ran for and was elected Governor of Illinois. Described as “square cut in politics or out”, and said to milk his own cows whenever possible, Lowden established himself as a classic Progressive-era politician, committed to industry, direct democracy, and more efficient government. He supported agricultural development, bureaucratic restructuring, lower taxes, home rule for Chicago, improving public schools, and full suffrage for women. He was lauded for consolidating 125 government agencies into nine departments, a successful cost-cutting measure for the state of Illinois. Lowden also installed the first state budget in the country, and as a result was called in to consult the federal government on the development of a national budget.

During the steel strike of 1919, his refusal to use troops ensured Illinois was one of the only manufacturing states free of violence. He also passed child labor and workmen’s compensation laws – distinguishing himself from his father-in-law, whose coffin had to be encased in cement to prevent its desecration by labor activists angry over the treatment of Pullman Company workers and strikers.

Lowden served as Governor until 1921. He came close to becoming the Republican presidential nomination in 1920 and 1928, and he declined the nomination for Vice-President in 1924. He lost the presidential nomination to Herbert Hoover in 1928.

Lowden maintained his affiliation with the Republican Party and remained engaged with politics after 1928, but focused his energy on his experimental farming. In 1900, Lowden had purchased the 5,000 acre Sinnissippi Farm (originally Hemenway Farm), in Oregon, Ogle county, Illinois and spared no expense in modernizing it. In 1903, Lowden abandoned his law practice and moved his whole family to the estate. When President Coolidge offered Lowden the post of ambassador to England in the late 1920s, he refused, saying he and his family were happier to remain on the farm.

American farms at the turn of the twentieth century were becoming increasingly industrialized, particularly in the Midwest, where new machinery and techniques of crop specialization allowed the expansion of arable land and the creation of large-scale enterprise. Lowden considered himself a modern farmer in technology and in marketing, and he advocated selling directly to the consumer. He frequently hosted other farmers and planters to demonstrate his innovative methods. Sinnissippi soon became a lucrative dairy operation, producing close to 500 pounds of butter per week by 1915. Sinnissippi farm functioned additionally as a wild game preserve and observatory. Lowden also purchased two Arkansas plantations, South Bend and Florenden. He served as the president of the Holstein-Friesian Association, the United States’ largest dairy breed association, 1921-1930.

Lowden was also a proponent of proper forest management and reforestation. In 1938, Lowden invited the newly formed forestry department at the University of Illinois to conduct research on the developing pine forest in his farm; the forest still serves as a field laboratory for the university. By the 1940s, Sinnissippi had become a prominent tree farm and Christmas tree retailer and wholesaler.

After his retirement from active politics, Lowden focused his energy on experimental farming; however, in 1933 became a receiver for the bankrupt Chicago Rock Island & Pacific Railroad. Florence Lowden died in 1937, leaving her husband a significant fortune. Lowden retired to Tuscon, Arizona, where he died in 1943. In 1992, much of Sinnissippi farm was sold by Lowden’s grandsons to the State of Illinois, becoming the Lowden-Miller State Forest; the state acquired the remainder in 1993.

Scope Note

The collection includes correspondence, reports, political literature, including brochures, posters, speeches, and clippings, and other ephemera related to the political, business and agricultural activity of Frank O. Lowden, as well as his personal relations with his family and associates. In 1925, a fire in Lowden’s office destroyed and damaged a great deal of his files; therefore, some of the salvaged documents in this collection are singed around the edges and must be handled with care. Lowden’s personal files were, at various points, reorganized by his secretaries, according to topical, alphabetically and chronological systems, and the collection arrived in Special Collections in various stages. The present collection is the most comprehensive organization to date, including the various addenda, and is organized chronologically and alphabetically at the level of each series and sub-series.

Series I: Correspondence, contains Lowden’s incoming and outgoing personal and professional correspondence, as well as biographical information. Business correspondence includes his trusteeship of the Chicago Rock Island and Pacific Railroad Company, and his wife’s Pullman estates and industries. Material spans 1897-1943.

This series includes a great deal of Republican party political literature from the early twentieth century. Oversize items have been moved to Series VI, Oversize.

Series III: Public Speaking, contains speeches and public statements given by Lowden, as well as correspondence related to his public appearances, and speeches given by others, 1892-1941.

Series IV: Agriculture, contains reports, correspondence and other materials related to Lowden’s farming activities in Sinnissippi, Florenden and South Bend, 1900-1943. It also contains literature, clippings, and other materials related to farming interests Lowden was involved in, and advocated on behalf of, such as his work with the Holstein-Friesian Association. Oversize items have been moved to Series VI, Oversize.
