James Warburton Brown

James Warburton Brown was born in London in 1876 and died of pneumonia, after a long illness, on December 8, 1928. He was educated at University College School and Charing Cross Hospital. In 1898 he obtained the diplomas of M.R.C.S. Eng. and L.R.C.P. Lond. Until the outbreak of war he practised as a dental surgeon. He served throughout the war in France and Salonika. On demobilisation he was attached to a neurological hospital under the Ministry of Pensions and from that time began his interest in psychopathology and psycho-analysis. He went through a training analysis in 1922, the completion of which, however, was unavoidably postponed, and was elected an associate member of the British Psycho-Analytical Society. He was active in attendance at the Society, but reserved in discussion. Being very occupied in practice and suffering for some time from poor health, he was unable to contribute much to the scientific work of the Society, but in March, 1928, he read a paper before the Society which we are glad to publish in the present number of the JOURNAL. He was an assiduous helper in the reviewing and abstracting department of the JOURNAL. His lifelong interest in the arts comes to expression in his paper, and the psychological significance of art is the subject he would undoubtedly have pursued further had he had the opportunity. Dr. Brown won the universal respect and affection of his colleagues through his persistent application, his gentle and kindly demeanour, and his steady loyalty to his friends and to the work to which he had devoted himself. His presence will be greatly missed among us and we deeply deplore his loss.
