Lowell died of brain cancer at his home in Summit, N.J., on Feb. 2, 2000. He was 50.
Raised in Philadelphia and Havertown, Pa., Lowell entered Princeton in the Class of '71. He joined the Class of '72 when illness postponed the start of his sophomore year.
As a member of the University Press Club, he was the Princeton correspondent for many major newspapers and wire services. He served the Press Club as pres. in 1971, and secy.-treas. in 1970. Lowell also belonged to Charter Club and was chair and cofounder of the Royal Huntation Society.
After graduating with a degree in English literature, Lowell earned a JD from Georgetown U. law center, where he met his future wife, Katherine L. Hufnagel.
Lowell practiced at the Washington, DC, law firm of Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering until 1983, when he joined the AT&T law department. During the 1980s and 1990s, he provided legal counsel for AT&T's pioneering work in the development of competitive alternatives to the local telephone companies. Lowell remained with AT&T as a senior attorney until 1996, when he became corporate counsel at Lucent Technologies. He retired from Lucent in 1999.
The introductory art courses in which Lowell enrolled at Princeton eventually became the foundation of a lifelong passion for the fine arts. His other interests included music, cinema, wine, fine food, and world travel.
Lowell is survived by his wife, Katherine L. Hufnagel, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Miller, and his brother, Lee H. We extend to them our deepest sympathy.
