Pueblo County, Colorado
William Ray Brown
Contributed by Maggie Stuart Zimmerman.
Dr. William Ray Brown, of Pueblo, engaged in the practice of dentistry and
thoroughly in touch with the most advanced scientific methods of the profession,
was born in Columbia, Pennsylvania, on the 18th of August, 1887, and is a son of
Charles J. and Elizabeth (McCurren) Brown, both of whom have now passed away.
The son supplemented his public school education by study in Girard College of
Philadelphia and afterward became a student in the Colorado College of Dental
Surgery, in which he pursued the full course and was graduated with the class of
1909, thus becoming well qualified for the onerous and responsible duties of the
profession. He had become a resident of Colorado in 1903 and in 1913 he removed
to Pueblo, where he opened an office and has since been successfully engaged in
the practice of dental surgery. He displays marked skill in the use of the many
delicate little instruments which form the equipment of the dentist, adding
mechanical ingenuity to broad scientific knowledge, and his work has been highly
satisfactory to his patrons, who, speaking a good word for him when opportunity
offers, have constituted an excellent medium of spreading his professional
reputation as a first class dentist. His business has thus steadily grown and
has now reached gratifying proportions.
On the 18th of July, 1910, Dr. Brown was united in marriage to Miss Bess M.
Bashor, a native of Colorado. They are well known socially in the city in which
they make their home, having an extensive circle of warm friends who extend
generous hospitality to them, They are members of the Congregational church and
Dr. Brown is also identified with the Masonic fraternity. His political
allegiance is given to the republican party, which he has supported since age
conferred upon him the right of franchise. His aid and influence in public
affairs are always given on the side of progress and advancement, as he believes
in constructive methods and his cooperation can be counted upon to further any
movement or measure for the general good.
