Business and sports executive.

Born at Portage la Prairie on 10 July 1895, son of Edward Brown and Esther Huston (c1866-1938), he graduated from the University of Toronto in 1916 and joined the firm of James Richardson and Sons Limited, remaining there until shortly before his death as manager of its future and wire division. He was President of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers from 1939 to 1940 and later President of the Western Inter-Provincial Football Union. He died at his Winnipeg home, 917 Palmerston Avenue, on 29 March 1960.
