Biographical history

Elwood Lorrie Cowley was born on August 2, 1944 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to William and Edwina (Call) Cowley. He was raised in Kinley, and received his elementary and secondary education at Kinley and Perdue Schools. Cowley earned Bachelor of Education (1965) and Bachelor of Arts (1967) degrees from the University of Saskatchewan.

He served two terms as president of the University of Saskatchewan Campus New Democrats (1963-1965), and president of the Saskatchewan Young New Democrats(1965). In 1970, Cowley was an organizer for Roy Romanow's leadership campaign and at the leadership convention was elected provincial treasurer of the Saskatchewan New Democratic Party (NDP).

Prior to his election to the Saskatchewan Legislature, Cowley was a teacher at Assiniboia Composite High School (1965) and Thom Collegiate in Regina (1967-1972). He was active in the Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation.

Cowley was first elected to the Saskatchewan Legislature in the 1971 general election and served as a NDP MLA for the Biggar constituency until 1982.
