Ist Lt Claiborne H Brown USMC, age 23, Tulane NROTC Class of 1961 died in an aircraft crash during the evening of 10/25/1963. Brown had just departed Brunswick Naval Air Station, Brunswick ME, in an A-4, en route to  Bunker Hill Air force Base IN. The aircraft crashed into nearby Casco Bay, slid up onto the shore and hit a vacant cottage. Brown had apparently attempted to eject from the aircraft; he was found nearby in a partially deployed parachute.
He is buried in New Orleans.
