George Isaac Brown was born in Hanover, New Hampshire March 14, 1923. He achieved his B.A. in Chemical Engineering and English at the University of New Hampshire in 1949, and returned for an Ed. M. in Elementary Education in 1954. In 1958, he received an Ed.D. from Harvard University. Following several elementary and junior high school teaching positions, he began lecturing at the Universities of New Hampshire and Delaware. He came to UCSB's Graduate School of Education as a Visiting Associate Professor in 1961 and achieved the status of Professor in 1969. Brown founded the confluent education program at UCSB, which was influenced by his training as a Gestalt therapist.
