Bowen was born in Kingston, Ontario, on June 21, 1887. He completed his elementary and high school education in Kingston public schools, and entered Queen’s University, Canada. Bowen had his sights set on becoming a teacher but after one year decided to join an Ontario Bureau of Mines geological mapping party to Larder Lake with the allure of money and travel. It was a revelation for him and he enrolled in the School of Mining upon his return, registering in mineralogy and petrology. He graduated with a bachelor of science degree in chemistry and geology in 1909.

During this project he performed research on rocks from the Avalon Terrane in Nova Scotia, Canada, as well as those in Namibia and Madagascar, Africa, and the White Sea in Russia. The other major area of research for Sam Bowring is the development of the continental crust. Ocean crust is created at the mid-ocean ridges and destroyed at the subduction zones within about 200 million years.
