Dr. Archibald Brown
Dr. Archibald BROWN, 69, lifelong resident of this city, passed away 11:15 p.m. Wednesday at his home, 218 West Eighth street. Death resulted from paralysis and complications. Dr. Brown suffered a stroke on July 22, 1924 and had been in ill health since that time. His condition became most critical a little over a week ago.

Dr. Brown was also a veteran of the Spanish-American war. He served two terms as both city and county health officer before ill health forced his retirement.

BROWN, of Alhambra, Calif.; a sister, Mrs. Edna WALLER, of Chicago; two half-sisters, Mrs. Jane SELLERS and Mrs. Catherine FLYD [?], both of Alhambra, Calif.
