Dates d'existence


Dr. Bruce L. Brown (1914- 2002) and Dorothy E. Cowderoy Brown collected artifacts, medieval fragments, documents, books, modern literary and political manuscripts, autographs, maps, and medals. They collected widely, purchasing many of the objects from dealers in London, England and Victoria, British Columbia.

Bruce Lloyd Brown was born on September 4, 1914. He attended the Victoria Normal School (1929) and Victoria College (1932). During WWII, Brown served as an officer with the Royal Canadian Navy Volunteer Reserve. Following WWII he worked for the Provincial Government of British Columbia until taking early retirement in 1972. In acknowledgement of his extensive support, the University of Victoria granted him an Honorary Doctorate in Fine Arts in 1991. He also received an honorary Doctor of Military Studies from Royal Roads Military College in 1993. He was the grandson of Alexander Brown who owned the Alexander Brown Milling Company and co-founded, with William Christie, the Canadian cookie and cracker company Christie, Brown and Company (which later became the Mr. Christie brand).

Bruce and Dorothy Cowderoy married in 1942 and had two children: Anthony W. Brown and Elizabeth Cole-Hamilton.

The Browns were active with a number of cultural associations in Victoria, British Columbia, and donated their collection to the University of Victoria, Maritime Museum of British Columbia, and Royal Roads University.
