Arthur Merrill Brown

Arthur Merrill Brown, MD, passed on from this life at the age of 91 after facing dementia and colon cancer with strength derived from his faith in God. After growing up in Oakland, Arcata and Santa Rosa, and becoming an Eagle Scout, Art’s family moved to San Jose. They rented a home from the parents of his future wife Margaret (Margy), so she was literally “the girl next door”. Her family ran the Lincoln Pastry Shop in Willow Glen and there was no lack of need for a loaf of bread or pastries that Art’s trip to the bakery couldn’t address. Soon after Art completed radio school in the Navy WWII ended before he was deployed out to sea. Nonetheless, Art’s GI Bill benefits helped support his medical training at Stanford University. He put his education in OB/GYN to good use as one of the founding group of physicians that formed the Sunnyvale Medical Clinic (now the Palo Alto Medical Foundation). His 35+ year career saw him deliver over 4,000 babies including children born to mothers whom he had also delivered. In accordance with his wishes, and in appreciation for the education he received, he donated his body to the Willed-Body Donation Program for the Anatomy Department at Stanford University.
