Laurie Shigley Brown has earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Classical Languages (Greek and Latin), from the Pennsylvania State University; a Master of Arts degree in Classical Languages (Greek and Latin), from the University of British Columbia; and had neared the completion of a Doctoral degree, with a primary emphasis in Greek and a secondary emphasis in Latin, at Bryn Mawr College. Shortly before the defense of her dissertation on primitive mythical patterns in the Iliad of Homer, her doctoral work was brought to a halt by the serious illness and eventual death of her first-born child. While at Bryn Mawr, Laurie was the recipient of a Whiting Dissertation Fellowship. She was also the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship for the purpose of conducting comparative studies of Ancient and Modern Greek Literature. Under the auspices of the Fulbright Foundation, she conducted research in Athens and on the island of Crete. In recent years she has been the principal force in the formation, organization, and development of The Classical Foundation of Lancaster, of which she serves as President, and The Lancaster Center for Classical Studies, where she is a teacher. She is a member, ex officio, of the Board of Directors of The Classical Foundation of Lancaster.
