Brown, Dr. Robert Jeffrey

Dr. Brown was born June 7, 1927 at Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan. It was on or about that day that Charles Lindbergh was given a ticker tape parade. His childhood was spent in New York City. At an early age, the family moved across the Hudson River to New Jersey.

He attended Union College, Rutgers University, and then the University of Louisville. There he met and married Diana Parket. They were together for 64 years and had two loving daughters.

After graduation from the University of Louisville in 1950, he attended the Chiropractic Institute of New York and earned his doctor of chiropractic degree in 1954. In 1958, he was qualified to sit for the Maryland Board of Homeopathic Examiners and was granted his MD degree in homeopathic medicine.

Later, through a friend and colleague, he became interested in Oriental medicine and received certification in clinical acupuncture by Logan University. He practiced holistically with emphasis on spinal therapy, clinical nutrition and medical acupuncture.

He will be sorely missed. In accordance with his wishes, there will be no service.

In lieu of flowers, Dr. Brown would be most honored by any contribution to Logan University, 1851 Schoettler Road, Chesterfield, MO 63017, Attn: Development/Memorial Donations/Medical Acupuncture Program.
