at the University of New Hampshire in 1949, and returned for an Ed. M. in Elementary Education in 1954. In 1958, he received
an Ed.D. from Harvard University. Following several elementary and junior high school teaching positions, he began lecturing
at the Universities of New Hampshire and Delaware. He came to UCSB's Graduate School of Education as a Visiting Associate
Professor in 1961 and achieved the status of Professor in 1969. Brown founded the confluent education program at UCSB, which
was influenced by his training as a Gestalt therapist. In addition to teaching, he published many articles and several books,
