Portrait of J. Moreau Brown

J. Moreau Brown was a member of the Executive Committee of the New York State American Revolution Bicentennial Commission and a vice chairman of the Bicentennial Council of the Thirteen Original States; two of the dozens of organizations formed to plan and implement appropriate events for the celebration of the nations 200th birthday in 1976.  He had served earlier in his career as Director of Admissions for St. Lawrence University, as well as in positions at New York University and General Electric.

The papers consist of meeting agendas, notes and correspondence concerning Mr. Brown’s duties on both Bicentennial committees.  Also included are publications, booklets, pamphlets, historic literature and other materials documenting the planning and execution of Bicentennial events and activities, as well as some ephemeral material such as buttons, lanyards, medallions, catalogs and other objects.

The collection was donated to St. Lawrence University in 1977.
