ADA Presidents Album


Doctor Brown, of Columbus, Ohio, was elected fifty-first president of the Association at the 191 3 meeting in Kansas City, Missouri. The Association was reorganized in 1913 under a new Constitution and Bylaws which established the House of Delegates and the Board of Trustees. Doctor Brown was chairman of the Committee on Dental Legislation for 21 years following his presidency. Through his efforts the status of dentists in the armed forces was equalized by law with that of physicians, and proposals for a sharp in­crease in tariffs on dental imports were defeated. Doctor Brown was instrumental in the establishment of the coopera­tive research program with the National Bureau of Standards. He was born in West Virginia in 1868 and died in 1953.
