Brown, Addison

Addison Brown gained prominence as a jurist, botanist, and author.

He was born February 21, 1830, in West Newbury, Massachusetts. In 1855, Brown was admitted to the New York bar. From 1881 to 1901, he performed the duties of district judge for the Southern District of New York.

A respected name in the field of botany, Brown acted as one of the founders of the New York Botanical Garden in 1891.

From 1896 to 1898, Brown co-authored three volumes of botanical research with Nathaniel L. Britton. The series was titled Illustrated Flora of the Northern United States, Canada and the British Possessions.

Brown died April 9, 1913, in New York City.

For African Company leading man James Hewlitt (played with tongue-in-cheek flourish by Leon Addison Brown), portraying the black-hearted British monarch Richard means proving that "any man can see that I am any man." With his "high falutin' Miltonian English" (even offstage) and a preoccupation with the sound rather than the intent of Shakespeare's words, James is at odds with his leading lady Ann (Gail Grate), who threatens to derail the production over what she considers to be her character's morally bankrupt behavior in marrying Richard.
