C. Arthur Brown, a leader in water purification for many years, died at the age of 73 on November 4 at Lorain, Ohio. Mr. Brown was born in Gallipolis, Ohio, attended Chaddock College in Quincy, Illinois where he first became interested in water purification through work in the Quincy Water Works. He came to Lorain in 1896 as an engineer with the O.H. Jewell Filter Co., and designed and supervised construction of the Lorain municipal water works; a plant which had many unique features when it was built. He promoted the use of ferrous sulfate (copperas) in water plants throughout the country. He served on George W. Fuller’s staff at Louisville during the experimental studies leading to the “1985 Report”.
In 1905 he became the Chief Engineer for the American Steel & Wire Co. in its purification bureau, holding this position until his retirement six years ago. About twelve years ago he invented the equal pressure diaphragm, a device to measure accurately the amount of water pumped into a filtration plant from the source of supply.
Mr. Brown was a member of the AWWA since 1905.
