He was born 10 November 1936. He received his BA Hon. in Economics from the University of Western Ontario in 1961and his MA from Queen's University the following year.

From 1992 until his retirement he taught primarily within the Faculty of Medicine.
Dr. Brown's research activities have spanned multiple departments, faculties and special research units, institutes and programs within Dalhousie. He has also been involved in research, committee work and task-force work for the Nova Scotia Department of Health and other public sector bodies.
