  • A Series of Lawrenceville Head Masters

    Posted July 1, 2015

    Isaac Van Arsdale Brown (1810–1834)

    Dr. Brown was the founder and first Head Master of The Lawrenceville School, which was known at first as the Academy of Maidenhead. Born in Pluckemin, New Jersey, in 1784, he graduated in 1802 from the College of New Jersey, (as Princeton was then called), studied medicine, and then turned to the ministry. He studied theology under Dr. John Woodhull, was ordained by the New Brunswick presbytery and made pastor at Maidenhead in 1807. Soon after taking charge of the church, he decided that he could add to the comfort and security of his family and advance the cause of education by starting a school (he had tried growing silkworms with little success).
