Leonard George Lowry (1884 – 21 November 1947) was a New Zealand politician of the Labour Party.
Early life and career
He was born in London in 1884. He entered the Civil Service but resigned so that he could travel abroad, settling in Lower Hutt in 1906. Before the First World War, he worked for Wellington City Council. During the war, he was on active service overseas until 1918. He was offered a job with the New Zealand Defence Force on his return, but declined, instead becoming a bookseller in Ōtaki. He remained in the job of bookseller until his death.
While living in Ōtaki, he was a member on various boards: the Borough Council, the Licensing Committee, and the Fire Board. In 1935, he was elected member of Parliament for Otaki, and again in 1938. Between the years of 1943 and 1945, he was the Chairman of the Maori Affairs Committee of the House. He retired from Parliament in 1946.
