    Biographical history

    Egerton Brown was the son of Newton H. Brown and Grace Amanda Young. His siblings include Elizabeth, Robert, Harcourt, and Quentin, and his wife's name was Hazel. Brown attended the University of Toronto in the 1920's and was involved in the U.C. Literary and Athletic Society. He was made a corporal in the Queen's Own Rifle in 1926 and became Captain in command of Head Quarters Company in the 4th Battalion of the Regiment. In 1939-1940, Brown was a volunteer fireman and policeman in the City of Westmount, and in 1940, joined the Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment of Canada) as a second lieutenant based on Varsity COTC and Queens Own Rifle Training. Brown became President of the Montreal Chapter of the National Office Management Association and was an administrator with Sun Life. In his own words, from 1939-1945 while at Sun Life, he was "in charge of world-wide office staff and administration."
