About Mike Brown
Mike Brown was born in Montgomery, Alabama–nine months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. His mother, Dorothy S. Brown had watched the Japanese planes fly over her home when it happened. His parents divorced sometime after his sister, Lani, was born. The family moved to various places while his mother worked towards obtaining a Ph.D. in English.
Mike’s Introduction to Steam
Mike got to be too much to handle for his mother when he was sixteen. She sent him to Arkansas where her father had a horse farm. Mike set up his room in an old turkey brooder house and his facilities consisted of an outhouse. When he was a teenager, his summer job was working for a man who extolled the virtues of steam engines. This experience eventually led him to manufacturing steam engines.
High School in Arkansas
In Arkansas the farm kids didn’t master the written language very well. Most of them paid Mike to write their senior theme papers. The teacher thought he had written at least five of them. When she asked him point blank how many had he had written, he told her twenty-eight.
Arkansas in the early 1960’s was no place for a high school graduate to make a decent living so Mike joined the U.S. Army. From 1960-1964 he served in the 82nd Airborne and 101st Airborne divisions. His military service taught him the reality of being a soldier and gave him an understanding of how military operations work which cannot be found by just reading a book on the subject.
In 1967 Mike married Lani Maisterra. Together they have had nine children and now six grandchildren.
In 1981 Mike put the Fish Carburetor back into production.
Over the last thirty-six years, Mike Brown has written quite a few articles and books on various types of alternative energy.
