Anne Wroe Scollay "Annie" Curtis Low was born Monday, November 29, 1847 in Boston, Massachusetts to Benjamin Robbins Curtis and Anne Wroe Scollay. Her mother and father were distant cousins. Her father served as an associate justice of the United States Supreme Court from 1851 until 1857.

She married Seth Low on December 9, 1880 in Trinity Church, Boston. They had no children. He served as mayor of Brooklyn, as President of Columbia University, as diplomatic representative of the United States, and as Mayor of New York City. He was a leading municipal reformer during the Progressive Era. After nearly thirty-six years of marriage, Seth died September 17, 1916.

Her wedding ceremony was performed by her close friend, Dr. Phillips Brooks. Annie was credited with being one of the few women of her time able to take verbatim reports of the torrential words of the great preacher.

She took a deep interest in many social and philantropic activities. From 1891 until 1912, she was an active member of Barnard College's Board of Trustees.

Annie was a lifelong member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Republican Party. She remained active in the community until six weeks before her death.

After being ill with pneumonia for two days, Annie passed away peacefully at 1:30 a.m. on Monday, April 1, 1929 at her home. She resided at 320 Park Avenue in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York at the time of her death.
