Julius L. Brown

Julius Brown was born in 1848 in Canton, Georgia. He was an Atlanta attorney, co-incorporator of the Metropolitan Street Railroad, and brother of a Georgia governor. Brown left two-thirds of his estate to Georgia Tech and thus Georgia Tech named its first ever endowned chair after Brown in 1910. The chair was later divided to create to Julius L. Brown Chairs, one in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and another in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
