Joseph Epes Brown

A correction concerning the biography of Joseph Epes Brown, author of The Sacred Pipe (1953).

In Against the Modern World, I said that in 1967 Brown “had … once taught at Indiana” (p. 161).

In fact, Brown received his PhD from University of Stockholm in 1970, taught at Indiana from 1970 to 1972, and then at the University of Montana (in the Department of Religious Studies) from 1972 until his retirement in 1989. He died in 2000.

My thanks to Rodger Cunningham for this correction.
