“Lowell Thomas was an American original — a crusading journalist, broadcaster, show man, entrepreneur and world class adventurer. For many in my generation he was an early hero with his swashbuckling ways and inexhaustible energy as he raced around the world, sending back radio reports and films of epic events. I can still hear in my memory’s ear the familiar phrase, ‘So long until tomorrow!’ It was a promise kept to his millions of listeners.”
