About the Author

William Garrott Brown was born on April 24, 1868, to Wilson Richard and Mary Cogswell Parish Brown; he was the youngest of eight children. He was educated in Marion and graduated from Howard College (present-day Samford University) with a bachelor of arts degree in 1886. After a year of independent study, he accepted a position at Marion Military Institute teaching English.

During the 1901-1902 academic year, he served as a lecturer in the History Department at Harvard University, but Brown began experiencing increasing deafness, making teaching difficult.

The period from 1900 to 1905 was Brown's most productive. He published no less than seven books during these years, including two volumes in the Houghton Mifflin Riverside Biographical Series, Andrew Jackson (1900) and Stephen Douglas (1902) and a stand-alone biography of Oliver Ellsworth. He also produced his best known work, The Lower South in American History (1902).
