This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Arthur Thomas Brown (April 20, 1900 – October 24, 1993) was an American architect who is remembered as “Tucson’s pioneer of solar design.” Brown was born in Takio, Missouri, and studied at Ohio State University graduating in 1927. He worked on the 1933 Century of Progress Exposition designing auxiliary buildings and signage. Both a fine art painter and trained architect Brown arrived in Tucson in 1936 opening his own architectural firm by 1941. He was a member of the exclusive Tucson Palette and Brush Club and the Tucson Fine Arts Association. His Modern style and use of passive heating and cooling was decades ahead of their time. In 1961 he was named an AIA fellow.

His buildings have only recently gained recognition. Many of his works have been lost including: Tucson General Hospital, Tucson Biltmore Motor Hotel and Tucson’s Carnegie Free Library (Tucson Children’s Museum) wall.

His residential projects are scattered throughout Tucson’s post World War II mid-century expansion district. Many of his buildings remain in Tucson including: the First Christian Church at 740 E. Speedway Boulevard, Faith Lutheran Church, 5th street. Delectables Restaurant on N 4th Avenue is also Brown's. It was built in the late 1940s for the Harley-Davidson dealership. The changes made were primarily interior.
