David Brown (18?? - 1930), who was often known as Deacon Brown, was a Scottishgolfer. He was a roofing slater by trade and a keen golfer. In 1886 he was working in Musselburgh when The Open Championship was about to be played. John Anderson, who was secretary of the Musselburgh Club at the time, invited him to play and provided him with a pair of striped trousers, a frock coat and a lum hat to wear. He shocked the professionals by winning the event and then turned professional himself. Image File history File links 1886_Open_Champion_David_Brown. ...

Brown said his $275-an-hour rate is deeply discounted; others from his firm are being paid about $125 per hour.
Brown rejects the notion that he and his law firm got the work on the Scripps project through political connections, or that its hiring amounted to a state-financed finder's fee for arranging the Florida-Scripps marriage.
Had Brown not been appointed to that nonpaying position, he probably wouldn't have been meeting privately with the governor in Tallahassee last spring, privy to the musings of an officeholder and power broker, when the subject of biotechnology arose.
