Robert L. Brown was a teacher of Western and Colorado history in the Denver School System for thirty-three years and later at the Denver Center of the University of Colorado. He has published a number of guide books focusing on Colorado history including Jeep Trails to Colorado Ghost towns (1963) and Ghost Towns of the Colorado Rockies (1968), both published by Caxton Press.Review:
"Brown's stock-in-trade is the then-and-now picture, and his Jeeping enthusiasts won't be disappointed in this collection of photographs. He has spent hours studying locations to get exactly the right angle to reproduce a spot taken perhaps 100 years earlier." Sandra Dallas, Denver Post (Sandra Dallas Denver Post 1972-09-10) --Denver Post
