Newell Wayne Bown

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Newell Wayne Bown was born in Provo, Utah on 11 May 1907. He grew up in Provo, although he spent his summers on the ranch and acquired a love for nature. He was the studious one of the family, but he enjoyed debate and stock judging. He liked botany, and his brother Casey says Newell took his bug and plant collecting kits with him when he went out on the range. Newell studied business administration at BYU and became business manager of the Y News. His friends described him thus: "...he was a gentleman in behavior and activity, inclined almost to shyness, but determined in what he decided to do." He also enjoyed basketball, skiing, and ice skating. Newell graduated in 1930 from BYU, and with several friends, he moved to New York City, New York to pursue a career. His first job was with Western Union, but he spent most of his career with American Surety Company. On February 14, 1931, he married his college sweetheart, Jennie Winona Brimhall, at the office of the local L.D.S. mission president. They had two children, Marjorie Mary and Robert Newell. Newell became Regional Claims Manager for American Surety Company, New York Casualty, and Surety Fire Insurance Company. He was also president of the New York City Claim Managers Council. In about 1941, Newell began evening courses in law from St. John's University. He was the first in his class for three years, and then his health deteriorated, but he still graduated with honors and was accepted by the New York Bar in 1945. He used his training in his capacity as Claim Manager at first, but he subsequently founded the law firm of Bown, Braham and Koehler. He also maintained his other affiliations. His co-workers remember him for his fine mind and integrity. When they first lived in New York, Newell and Jennie enjoyed owning a cabin boat called the "Indra 13" to explore the New York waterways. Later, they moved to Long Island. Newell took up gardening in an imaginative and dedicated fashion. He added onto their house and began an interest in cabinetry and furniture making. He also enjoyed deep-sea fishing, and lake fishing in the Catskills and Adirondack mountains. He liked history and opera, and was always eager to learn new things. In later years, he and Jennie moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and they enjoyed the historical treasures of that area. Newell was troubled with asthma and allergies for much of his adult life. Medical treatments for his condition were not well well developed at this period in time, and the dangers of high, prolonged doses of cortisone were not understood. Subsequently, the use of this steroid led to premature arterial disease, and his death. He passed away at home on 24 June 1966 at the young age of 59.

Life timeline of Newell Wayne Bown

Newell Wayne Bown was born on 11 May 1907
Newell Wayne Bown was 10 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.

Newell Wayne Bown was 32 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

The Allied soldiers quickly break through the Atlantic Wall and push inland in the largest amphibious military operation in history. The Allies of World War II, called the United Nations from the 1 January 1942 declaration, were the countries that together opposed the Axis powers during the Second World War (1939–1945). The Allies promoted the alliance as a means to control German, Japanese and Italian aggression.

Newell Wayne Bown was 50 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
