Thaddeus Lowe (August 20, 1832 - January 16, 1913), also known as Professor T. S. C. Lowe, was a magician, an American Civil War aeronaut, scientist and inventor, mostly self-educated in the fields of chemistry, meteorology, and aeronautics, and the father of military aerial reconnaissance in the United States.
By 1854, having worked for a time as an assistant to a traveling magician, Lowe had decided on a career in ballooning.
