Percy Brown Professorship


The Percy Brown, Jr., Professorship in Law was funded by the late Ethel Royster Brown in memory of her husband. Percy H. Brown, Jr. (Law '39), was a partner in the Louisville, Kentucky, firm of Ogden, Brown, Robertson & Marshall, which he joined in 1939 and where he practiced until his death in 1964. In 1957, Percy Brown created a scholarship fund for law students. Ethel Brown, whose family owned and operated the Norfolk-based Royster Fertilizer Company, and her sister created a professorship to support cancer research in the School of Medicine that honors their father, William Stamps Royster.
