Francis S. Low, Deputy Chief of Naval Operations. Rear Admiral Francis Stuart Low was born in Albany, New York in 1894. He was a graduate of the US Naval Academy, Annapolis in 1915. During WWI he served in submarines and later worked on submarine and torpedo research. In 1923 he served on the staff of Rear Admiral M.M. Murray, Commander Control Force and Submarine Division 13. In 1926 he attended the Naval War College. From 1932 to 1935 he served on the staff of Submarine Squadron 5 and later assumed command of USS Paul Jones. Following he became Commander Submarine Division 13 in 1937. From December 1940 to August 1942 he served on the staff of Admiral King when he left to command the cruiser USS Wichita in Operation Torch, the Allied invasion of North Africa, and the Battle of Round Island in the Pacific. In early 1943 he was recalled to serve on Admiral King's staff in which position he was a key architect in the planning and implementation of Tenth Fleet. While Admiral King was the nominal commander of Tenth Fleet, the daily operations were in the hands of Rear Admiral Low which command he held until January 1945.
