Notes for Alden Hugh Brown:
19 Jan 2001
I called Denny today in Glendale (near L.A.) to say hi and ask about info of our ancestors. He and Cathy were heading to his retirement party (from the State of CA), after 50 years of work. He'll start work again in 2 weeks, though. His immediate reponse was to recommend Stegner's "Angle of Repose."He said the 1st half of book tells story of a mining engineer in Colombia which is what my great grandfather - Alden Hugh Brown - his grandfather did. The book isn't about AHB but it describes the life and rigors someone like him went through.
The big question for him and for the family is why AHB would leave his 3 young children, my grandfather, Sandy (ACB), and Denny's mother, Mary, to go to Colombia. No one in the family seems to know.
