Biographical / Historical:
Julie Brown was one of the artists in the Photo-Art Department at the Glenn L. Martin - Nebraska Company during World War II. Brown studied at both the Rhode Island School of Design and the Art Students' League in New York. During World War I, she worked in the American Red Cross' Hospital Hut Service in France. In this capacity, Brown made silhouettes of soldiers in the various hospitals. After returning to the United States, her art appeared in magazines, newspapers, shows and exhibitions. After World War II started, Brown completed engineering drawing courses at Omaha University and began work at the Martin-Nebraska Company in 1943 as a production illustrator. The Martin-Nebraska Company produced Martin B-26 and Boeing B-29 aircraft during the war.
