3. Herbert C. Brown - Autobiography
herbert C. brown – Autobiography. My grandfather's name had been anglicized to brown,and that became yearbook Sarah predicted that I would be a nobel Laureate
My parents, Charles Brovarnik and Pearl Gorinstein, were born in Zhitomir in the Ukraine and came to London in 1908 as part of the vast Jewish immigration in the early part of this century. They were married in London. In 1909 my sister, Ann, was born. I arrived on May 22, 1912. In June 1914 my father decided to join his mother and father and other members of his family in Chicago, much to the dismay of my mother, whose own family largely remained in England. My grandfather's name had been anglicized to Brown, and that became our name. In the United States, my two sisters, Sophie and Riva, were born in 1916 and 1918.
My father had been trained as a cabinet maker, doing delicate inlaid work. However, he found little market for his skills in the U.S. and turned to carpentry.
The Depression of 1920 persuaded him to go into business and he opened a small hardware store in Chicago at 18th and State Street, largely a black neighborhood. We lived in an apartment above the store and I attended the Haven School at Wabash and 16th Street with predominantly black classmates.
I did well in school and was advanced several times, graduating at 12. Indeed, I was offered, but refused, further advancement since I did not want to be in the same class with my sister, Ann.

Home HCB Story Lecture Archive ... HCB Lectures in Organic Chemistry Biography Professor Herbert C. Brown was born in London, England on May 22, 1912. He came to this country at an early age and received his education in Chicago, receiving the B.S. degree in 1936 and the Ph.D. degree in 1938, both from the University of Chicago. Following a year with Professor M. S. Kharasch as Postdoctorate Fellow, he was appointed to the staff of the University of Chicago with the rank of Instructor. In 1943 he went to Wayne University (Assistant Professor, 1943-1946; Associate Professor, 1946-1947) and in 1947 he transferred to Purdue University. He presently holds the title of R. B. Wetherill Research Professor Emeritus. At a time when steric hindrance was considered to be "the last refuge of puzzled organic chemists", his studies of molecular addition compounds contributed to the reacceptance of steric effects as a major factor in chemical behavior. His studies on aromatic substitution led to a quantitative theory based on the new Brown s constants.

H erbert and Sarah Brown have spent their career dedicated to discovering new science, new people and new ideas. They met in 1932 at Crane Junior College, Chicago, but it closed in 1933. They continued their education in 1934 at a newly-opened Wright Junior College, where upon graduation in 1935, Sarah inscribed a note in Herb's yearbook , " To a future Nobel Laureate ."

Brown, Herbert Charles,
original name HERBERT BROVARNIK (b. May 22, 1912, London, Eng.), American chemist whose pioneering work with inorganic and organic boron compounds won him (along with Georg Wittig ) the 1979 Nobel Prize for Chemistry Brought to the United States in 1914 by his Ukrainian-born parents, Brown grew up in Chicago and graduated from the University of Chicago in 1936. He received his doctorate in 1938 and remained at Chicago as an instructor until 1943. He taught at Wayne State University in Detroit from 1943 to 1947 and at Purdue University from 1947, becoming Wetherill distinguished professor there in 1959 and emeritus in 1978. Brown's work with borohydrides led to the development of an important new class of inorganic reagents. His discovery of the organoboranes revealed an array of powerful and versatile reagents for organic synthesis. He was also known for studies of reactions involving so-called carbonium ions or carbo-cations. Brown was the author of Hydroboration (1962) and Organic Syntheses via Boranes

Herbert C. Brown graduated in 1935 from Wright Junior College with eight other students as the first graduating class. He obtained his B.S. in 1936 at the University of Chicago. He obtained his Ph.D. in 1938. In 1947 the Head of the Chemistry Department invited him to Purdue, to be Professor of Inorganic Chemistry. In 1960 he became Wetherill Research Professor. His research originally covered physical, organic and inorganic chemistry. However, as the Department became more organized into divisions, he had to make a choice and he decided to work primarily with coworkers in organic chemistry. He won numerous awards, the National Academy of Sciences in 1957, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1966, and the Nobel Prize in 1979, along with many others.

Perhaps a quote from his oral history sums up Herbert Brown best. "I've had an unusual career. It began in 1936; that would be sixty years of research in the boron area. I have, in effect, uncovered a brand new continent of chemistry." Herbert Brown went to college because an education was a tool for getting a job during the Great Depression. Instead of entering industry, as many others did, Brown spent his years in academia, where he discovered a new branch of chemistry: borane chemistry. Herbert Brown was born in London, England, in 1912 to Jewish immigrants from the Ukraine. In 1914 his family moved to the United States to join his paternal grandparents in Chicago. After his father died in 1926, Brown was forced to quit school and find employment to support his family. He later graduated from high school in 1930, but had no plans of going to college. However, he could not find steady employment during the Great Depression , Brown enrolled in Crane Junior College in 1932. Brown and a student at work in the lab.

By Arno Penzias Czeslaw Milosz Daniel Nathans David H. Hubel ... William A. Fowler
As members of the international community of intellectuals and scholars we are shocked by the recent indictment and the imminent trial of three dissident leaders, Adam Michnik, Bogdan Lis, and Wladyslaw Frasyniuk. These actions indicate that our hopes for a more tolerant attitude toward free speech in Poland have been unfounded. These leaders, already imprisoned for two months, have been charged with inciting public unrest for merely discussing the possibility of calling a fifteen-minute general strike to protest food price increases. The strike, as you know, never even occurred. Among those jailed is the historian Adam Michnik. A noted author and theorist of democracy, Michnik has devoted a lifetime to nonviolent protest on behalf of economic, cultural, and political freedom. He has already spent several years in prison in Poland. His release last summer was interpreted by some as a harbinger of liberalization. Mr. Michnik's reimprisonment, so suddenly, obviously belies this view. We strongly protest the imprisonment of Mr. Michnik and his colleagues. Any government which responds to the peaceful dissent of intellectuals through forceful detainment violates international standards of human rights and in so doing alienates itself from individuals and institutions in the world for whom such rights are sacrosanct. We demand that the Polish government adopt a genuine program of liberalization and begin by releasing Mr. Michnik and his colleagues.
