Belmore Browne

Belmore Browne (1880-1954) was an accomplished American landscape oil painter whose work is on permanent exhibition at the Smithsonian American Museum of Art, in Washington, D.C. and in diorama backgrounds at the American Museum of Natural History, New York.  He was a member of the 20th Century scientific explorations into Alaska and a member of three pioneering expeditions to Mount McKinley.

Belmore volunteered to serve his country during World War II and the Korean War, training Airmen and Rescue personnel survival techniques for northern and winter climates.   His Survival Training lectures and diagrams have been assembled into “The Airman’s Arctic Survival Guide” and vintage reproductions of the original posters.

Many of these items you will see on display at The Browne Center as Belmore is the father of our namesake, Evelyn Browne.  Below is additional information on the books and posters that are available for purchase through the Browne Family Collection, LLC.  The Collection is dedicated to preserving and publishing the art and writing of Belmore and George Browne.
