During the height of the Great Depression, Harry Fletcher Brown first came to the aid of the University of Delaware and, over the next decade, became one of the University's most generous benefactors, financing construction of Brown Laboratory, Hullihen Hall, an addition to Memorial Hall, and this residence hall, which is named in his honor.

Harter Hall was the only permanent building on this area of The Green, until Brown Hall was constructed in 1941, featuring such elegant touches as marble doorways.

Mr. Brown enjoyed great personal success, first as a chemist, developing smokeless gunpowder, and then as a top-level executive at the Du Pont Company, and his benefactions throughout Delaware enriched the lives of many.
