Class of '37
Albert Neir Brown, Lincoln, NE
Albert Brown, who died on August 14, 2011, aged 105, was the oldest survivor of the Bataan death march, when American prisoners of war endured treatment as merciless as that meted out to Allied PoWs on the Burma-Thailand railway.
Albert Neir Brown was born on October 26, 1905 at North Platte, Nebraska, the godson of the Wild West folk hero "Buffalo Bill" Cody, who often let the boy sit on his lap and tug his beard. Brown moved with his family to Council Bluffs, Iowa, following the death of his father, a railway engineer .
After attending Abraham Lincoln High School in Council Bluffs, IA, Albert studied Dentistry at Creighton University and joined a large medical practice. Then, in 1937, he was conscripted as a lieutenant in the US Reserve Officers Training Corps and drafted to Minneapolis. It was nearly 10 years before he saw his wife and three children again.
