Sam Brown was the author of many Edmund Scientific books that got me into astronomy as a kid. After a quick Google search, aside from this link, and this archived CN thread, there doesn't seem to be any biographical information out there about Sam Brown. I am struck by the fact that not even a single photo of him is available.
I am especially looking for photographs of him. To me the only image I have in my head is Ward Cleaver, the archetypal father figure of the 60's. That is pretty much who he often sketched in his Edmund booklets..Tony Flanders who posted in the archived thread mentions that "Dennis di Cicco... has a whole file on Sam Brown at home." No follow up post was made.
- Was there any other follow up to this discussion that I have missed?
- Are there any photographs of Sam Brown available?
- Any other biographical info?
Tony Flanders (& others) can you help any more about this?
