This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Etcher, painter and printmaker, Howell Chambers Brown created work that included California scenes, the Grand Canyon, and pueblos of New Mexico.

He was born in Little Rock, Arkansas but moved at age sixteen with his family to Pasadena, California.  He graduated from Stanford University Engineering College and then, giving up engineering, lived for several years on a ranch in Sinaloa, Mexico. Political upheaval drove him back to California where he studied art and became known locally for his paintings but nationally for his printmaking abilities.

In 1914, he and his brother, Benjamin, started the Printmakers of LA, which later became the California Society of Printmakers.

His work is in the Smithsonian Institution, where a 1924 exhibition included subjects of Acoma and Laguna Pueblos in New Mexico, the Grand Canyon in Arizona, and California scenes of Santa Barbara, San Francisco and Monterey.
