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.
