Bud & Pat

Bud and Pat Brown met as librarians working at the Robbins Library in Arlington, Massachusetts. They have been married for 49 years and for the last nine years they have spent their summers as the hosts of the Baptist House. The first time Pat came to Chautauqua in 1977 she cried because she didn’t know anyone, but when Bud came to pick her up a week later she cried because she didn’t want to leave. When I first met Pat and Bud, I was attracted to their incredible warmth and the sense of belonging they create with their hospitality. —Ruby Wallau
