Adam N. Brown '97
The Adam N. Brown '97 Memorial Fund is an endowment established at Dartmouth College by the family and friends of Adam Brown, Class of 1997, to celebrate his life and perpetuate his energy, innovation, and enthusiasm. Adam was a prospective major in Geography when he died of cancer in 1994.
The Adam N. Brown '97 Memorial Award in Geography is administered by the Department of Geography. The award is presented to recognize the best written work in Geography in an academic year. In accordance with the wishes of the family and the faculty, the student need not be a major in Geography. The names of the successive recipients of the award will be engraved on a plaque displayed in the Geography Department.
