Obituary of Albert H.E. Brown

Please share a memory of Albert to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Dad was born and raised in Glenside PA, but called Mt. Airy in Philadelphia home for most of his life, surrounded by his family. He is survived by Ellen, his wife of 49 years, his children Dan and Kate, his granddaughter Leslie and his brother Ed. Dad suddenly, but peacefully passed away (unrelated to Covid) surrounded by his immediate family.

Dad went to Haverford College, to which he remained loyal his whole life. He was drafted into the army during the Vietnam war and served in intelligence interpreting aerial photography. Upon his return, Dad attended the University of Pennsylvania for his PhD in German language and literature. This led to a short career teaching German at Rutgers University and the University of Delaware. He then became the Director of Publications at a technology company.


He spent his retirement working through his abundant library, developing a passion for Book Arts, taking classes and creating art by folding paper. He was a member of the Philadelphia Center For The Book and participated in many of their art exhibitions. He spent lots of time with his family and helping to homeschool his granddaughter.

Unfortunately, there will be no memorial services at this time; please stay safe during this pandemic. We, his immediate family, are sitting Shiva at home this week. Visits are discouraged but phone calls are welcome in lieu of a visit.


Donations in Dad’s memory can be made to Quintessence Theatre Group. This is a small local performance company that Dad supported long before it even began. He probably saw every one of their productions since opening. They could use some extra help though this tough time. Donations can be made through their website
