Introduction to the Collection

The Papers of Sanborn C. Brown contains information related to his tenure as professor of physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as well as his scientific publications, research material for his book on Count Rumford, and the study of science. The papers include foreign and domestic correspondence, including correspondence with Senator John F. Kennedy from 1958; notes; 19th and 20th century books on physics, in particular those related to plasma physics and nuclear thermodynamics; journal publications; academic papers; presentations; speeches; reviews; financial information; color drawings and audio reels with some of his speeches, as well as a typed copy of his 1962 biography of Count Rumford entitled Benjamin Thompson - His Life and Times. Of note are a fragile copy of the book Memoirs of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences Vol. IV Part I (1818) and three rectangular wooden boxes with glass slides of drawings and writings related to the study of physics.

The collection also contains documents relating to Rev. Francis Brown's involvement with Dartmouth College in the 19th century, including original copies of catalogues and pamphlets. Among the Reverend's effects are a brown bag with letters of introduction and calling cards, some with wax seal dated 1838-1841, an original travel document given to Louise R. Brown by the Secretary of State dated May 15, 1895, notebooks with handwritten entries 1839, 1847, several original copies of "A Continuation of the Narrative of the Indian Charity School" by Eleazar Wheelock D.D. printed in the year 1773, 1775, 1765 and "A Plain and Faithful Narrative of the Original Design, Rise, Progress and present State of the Indian Charity School" by Eleazar Wheelock dated 1763.

Biography

Sanborn Conner Brown, born January 19, 1913 in Beirut, graduated from Dartmouth College in 1935. In 1937 he received an Master's in Physics from Dartmouth as well. He began his long teaching career in 1935 as a research assistant at Dartmouth College. In 1937 he was named a Kramer Fellow and by 1938 had moved up to the position of teaching fellow. He became an instructor in the Physics department in 1941, an associate professor in 1945, an assistant professor in 1949 and a full professor in 1962. In 1963 he became the Assistant Dean of the Graduate School at M.I.T from which he retired a professor emeritus in 1975. Sanborn Brown was an authority on plasma physics and thermodynamics. He published extensively in scientific journals and published a biography of Count Rumford (Benjamin Thompson) in 1962. He was a member of the Dartmouth Alumni Council from 1968-1971 and also chaired the Continuing Education Committee. He died on November 28, 1981.

Rev. Francis Brown D.D. was born in Rockingham, NH in 1784. He graduated Dartmouth College in 1805 and worked as a tutor from 1806-1809. He was ordained in 1810 and worked as a professor of language at Dartmouth College in 1810 before becoming President of the College in 1815. He died on July 7, 1920. He was the great-great grandfather of Sanborn Brown and the father of Samuel Gilman Brown.

Samuel Gilman Brown was born in 1813 and graduated Dartmouth College in 1831. He worked as a professor at the College form 1840-1867 before becoming President of Hamilton College in Clinton, NY in 1867. He stayed at Hamilton until 1881 and continued his teaching career as professor at Bowdoin College from 1883-1885. He died in 1885.
