Who was Frank Fowler Dow?

Frank Fowler Dow (1851 – 1928) was born in Fowlerville, NY.   The town was named after his great-great grandfather, Wells Fowler.  Mr. Dow attended college at Geneseo and studied medicine at the University of Buffalo.  Did you know that he worked to have New York State pass legislation so that all schools have a playground?  It is part of a law named after him, the Dow Law.  In 1930, School 52 was named after Dr. Dow to honor this man who did so much for children, his community and education.
