After graduating from Queen's, Dr. Brown earned his master’s and doctoral degrees from MIT and was a faculty member at the Robert M. Buchan Department of Mining. He served as dean of what was then called the Faculty of Applied Science from 1964 to 1970.

Dr. Brown was well known for his love of life, of teaching and learning and of conceptualizing and building.

According to his wishes there will be no formal funeral or celebration of life. In lieu of flowers, donations to the UHKF, in support of the Kingston Health Sciences Centre would be appreciated by the family.
