Peter C. Brown's grandfather was a prospector, the engineer for a gold mining company in Nome, Alaska, 1900-1902. "I never knew him," Brown says, "but his diaries and scrapbooks have always fired my imagination." A graduate of Beloit College, Brown is a retired business consultant. He and his wife live in St. Paul, Minnesota, where they keep a 1968 River Queen houseboat on the Mississippi River.
