He was the son of Albert Brown and Flora Prescott. His sister married Charles G. Dulin. The Browns were natives of New Hampshire. Their father, Albert Brown, was a prominent politician of the Old Granite State. When they were young the family moved to Boston, Massachusetts. Among their ancestors there are some of the most distinguished people of New Hampshire, being descendants of Governor Bartlett, the state's first Governor, and of the celebrated Prescott family, of which the historian Prescott was a member. In 1880 Miss Brown married to Dr. Charles G. Dulin, who was of an old Virginia family. Since the death of Mrs. Dulin's father, which occurred in 1882, Mrs. Dulin's mother, Mrs. Flora Prescott Brown, resided with her daughter in Washington, D.C., 310 East Capitol street.[4]

In 1905 Brown was elected the President of the Amoskeag Savings Bank to succeed Otis Barton.[5]

In June 1911 Brown was elected by the alumni to be a trustee of Dartmouth College,[6] serving until 1931.

Brown served a single term as Governor of New Hampshire from 1921 to 1923.

He died on March 28, 1937, in Manchester, New Hampshire.
