Personal and Professional Slides

This series consists of a photograph and many slides which were not in interfiled with Brown's other papers. The images consist predominantly of scenes from various parts of BC and the Yukon, as well as Brown's trips to Europe in the 1950s. A vast majority of the slides are stereoscopic, designed to produce a three-dimensional image when viewed through a special holder. Of these slides, the majority were processed by the View-Master company and are housed in the circular reels designed for View-Master viewers.

National Revenue (Taxation) - Personal corrrespondence and other papers

This series consists of materials related to Brown's ten months as Deputy Minister for National Revenue for Taxation. All official records related to his position remain with the government of Canada, so the papers here are personal in nature, including invitations to events, letters upon his appointment and resignation, and large prints of two comics based on his time in office.
