Gow, David (d. ca. 1939)
Scottish journalist, poet, and Spiritualist. As a poet Gow contributed
to such journals as Cassell’s Saturday Journal, London
Magazine, and London Scotsman and his poems were included in
such anthologies as Modern Scottish Poets and Book of Highland
Verse. He was author of Four Miles From Any Town (1929) and

Gow was an outstanding figure in British Spiritualism. In
January 1914 he took over editorship of the famous Spiritualist
journal the Light following the death of editor E. W. Wallis.
Gow continued in that position until 1930. He was a lucid and
prolific writer on psychic literature and philosophy and knew
many of the leading figures in the field, including Agnes
Guppy-Volckman and Emma H. Britten.
