Past: Activist, Guru
Lowell Baldwin is Gloria's old flame, and the father of Michael Baldwin. He took off when he got drafted and moved to Canada, leaving Gloria to raise Michael without him.
Recently, the discovery of his grandmother's diary, enabled Michael to find out more about his father, mostly that he was a no-good, substance-abusing hippie! With help from P.I. Paul Williams, Michael also found out that Lowell was still alive and had a warrant out on him for a murder that occurred during a robbery. Thinking he had found Lowell in the Ashland County lock-up, Michael was discouraged to find out that Lowell had switched identities with another petty criminal. The impostor did, however, tell Michael that his father spoke of him often, and is a genius!
Unexpectedly, Lowell/River Baldwin was revealed to his son at Kevin and Jana's wedding, where he was the Guru who performed the ceremony! He followed a bitter Michael back to Genoa City to try and make amends. Unfortunately, a jealous Jeffrey Bardwell turned him in on the old warrant and he was thrown in jail. It was then revealed that River had another child, Eden, who turned up on Michael's doorstep distraught! River allowed Michael to help defend him from the charges against him, but panicked and pulled an escape from prison with Eden's help.
