     Biographical/Historical note 
 James Stephen Brown was born on October 20, 1916 in a coal camp at McVeigh in Pike County, Kentucky. He spent the first 12 years of his life living in coal camps, where his father, Luther, worked for the YMCA, and his mother, Lydia, taught children's Sunday School. Because his parents wanted Jim and his brothers to have an opportunity for life beyond the coal camp experience, Jim's father took a job in Berea College's Broomcraft Department and the family moved to Berea, Kentucky in 1928. Brown earned an A.B. degree from Berea in 1937, majoring in economics with additional work in history, political science, and philosophy. He went on to study sociology at Harvard, was mentored by Talcott Parsons, and earned an M.A. in 1942 and a Ph.D. in 1950. Throughout his academic career, he was particularly interested in the social structure of eastern Kentucky and made intensive studies of community life in that region. His research emphasized kinship structure, but he was also interested in social change and the adjustment of migrants from rural Kentucky into their new urban settings. Brown worked as a Social Science Analyst with the U.S. Department of Education from 1945 to 1946, when he began work as an "assistant" in the University of Kentucky's Department of Rural Sociology. He was later promoted to Assistant Professor of Rural Sociology in 1949 and eventually, in 1965, to Professor. Under the Fulbright-Hays program, he was awarded a research fellowship in Germany (1954-55) at Bonn University, and later also in Italy (1964-65) at the University of Naples. He coauthored the book,  Mountain Families in Transition  (with Harry K. Schwarzweller and J.J. Mangalam), Pennsylvania State University Press, 1971. Brown's dissertation research was later published as  Beech Creek: A Study of a Kentucky Mountain Neighborhood  Berea College Press, 1988. He also published numerous academic articles and reports. Due to a disability, Brown retired from the University of Kentucky in the early 1980s, but continued to work with younger colleagues on a fourth phase of the Beech Creek project. He also maintained his personal relationships with Beech Creekers and with his former research associates until his death on October 28, 1999.
