Dorothy Brown speaking at a ceremony held in Gaston Hall to mark the appearance of Healy Hall on a 15-cent postal card issued by the Post Office
Georgetown College (1789-1815)
Dr. Brown joined the Georgetown faculty in 1966 and was elected to chair the History Department in 1973. In 1998, she was appointed interim Provost and she served as Provost from 1999 until her retirement in 2002. Fr. James Walsh, S.J., delivered a toast to Dr. Brown in the Jesuit Community Dining Hall on May 20, 2002, on the occasion of her retirement. It included the following: 'She was famous as a teacher. Students have told me of Dorothy’s patented method of learning their names: by walking up and down the aisles as they took the first exam of the semester. Students say she had their names “nailed.” I prefer to say that she had them by heart, and for good. Her teaching affected and reached each student personally . . . [her] teaching – working with students on term papers, inspiring with snappy and memorable lectures – left a lasting impression on her students.'
