Bill Brown, Ed.D.



Now retired from my ‘day job’ of being an educator for forty-three plus years, I am in the process of settling in to working with hobbies that have taken a back seat in the past. In particular, I am organizing a collection of old banjos and parts that have been accumulating for many years. This effort will be showcased at Bill’s Banjos.


In addition, I expect to be visiting many of my favorite bluegrass festivals and perhaps adding to the North Georgia Bluegrass Chronicles – an effort brought to fruition several years ago in collaboration with good friend Mike Fleming.


Of course, I will continue my interest in and association with my two alma maters – The University of Tennessee, Knoxville and Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, TN. These two institutions have provided anchors for both my professional and personal lives and I hold both in high esteem. I feel blessed to have many good friends and colleagues at both and look forward to continuing my associations for many years to come.
