About William Robinson Brown in brief
W. R. Brown was an American corporate officer of the Brown Company of Berlin, New Hampshire. He was also an influential Arabian horse breeder, the founder and owner of the Maynesboro Stud, and an authority on Arabian horses. In 1929, he wrote The Horse of the Desert, still considered an authoritative work on the Arabian breed. His innovations in forest management became industry standards. He died of cancer in 1955, and was survived by his wife, his five children, his 15 grandchildren, and his two older and two older step-daughters. The term “CrabbetMaynesboroKellogg” is a label for specific lines of Arabian horses that descend from Brown’s breeding program. In 2012, the Berlin and Coös County Historical Society held a 100th anniversary celebration of the stud’s founding.

He later served as president of the Arabian Horse Club of America from 1918 until 1939. He had a special interest in promoting the use of Arabians by the U. S. Army Remount Service. In 1933, he organized and participated in a number of endurance races of up to 300 miles, which his horses won three times, retiring the US Mounted Service Cup. He remained in charge of the Woods Division through the company’s second bankruptcy filing in 1941. He retired from the company in 1943 and died in 1955. He lived in New Hampshire for the remainder of his life, in Berlin until 1946 and then Dublin, and was buried at the Dublin cemetery. His final book, Our Forest Heritage, was published posthumously, and he was buried in Dublin on August 4, 1955. His two older sons, Fielding and Herbert, all attended Williams, and returned to Princeton University and earned a Ph.D. in Physics.
