Artist, educator and athlete, Joe Brown was the pre-eminent sports sculptor of his time. Born in Philadelphia, he entered Temple University in 1927 on a football scholarship. Brown apprenticed to sculptor, physician, and educator Dr. R. Tait McKenzie. In 1938, he joined the faculty of Princeton University as a boxing coach, and two years later, he became the Resident Fellow in Sculpture. Brown continued coaching until 1962 at which time he became a full Professor of Art. He taught sculpture until he retired in 1977.

His work is included in the permanent collections of the University of Pennsylvania, Yale University, Harvard University, Princeton University, Columbia University, the National Academy of Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the New Jersey State Art Museum, the Kennedy Memorial Library and the Woodmere Art Museum, among many others.
