1903 - 1993
F(rederick) Martin Brown was a geologist, entomologist, paleoentomologist, physiologist and teacher, associated with Colorado and the Rocky Mountains area for most of his working life, but with wide-ranging interests and projects. He was a research associate at the American Museum of Natural History from 1926 to 1929 and again from 1957 on, and published a number of papers in its Bulletin and in American Museum novitates. In his entomological work, Brown specialized in the study of Lepidoptera, particularly butterflies. One of his projects involved tracing the routes of 19th century collectors, including William H. Edwards and Theodore L. Mead, and studying the type specimens named by them. In another project he studied the taxonomical work of Johann C. Fabricius. From 1929 through the 1930s, Brown studied and collected in Jamaica, Yucatán and Ecuador; and in 1946, Costa Rica. He was a researcher at the Florissant (Colo.) Fossil Beds, studying the fossil insects, and also published works on geology. Brown died in 1993.
