Mrs. W. R. Brown is on the right. Kate Moore Brown was a spectacular woman with a big impact on El Paso. She was born on December 17, 1871 and moved to the city of El Paso at the age of 14. Her father was very ill when she was young, so she and her family decided to move to an area that was sunny and warm: El Paso. Brown was the first ever female to graduate from high school in El Paso. She graduated at age 16. As a matter of fact, there were only two graduates that year that met the expectations of going to college. The two graduates were her and 20 year old George Prentiss Robinson. Brown revolutionized the face of art and music history in El Paso, being the first ever art teacher in El Paso. She was also part of many music groups and choirs, which showed she had a great passion for music. She and her husband, William R. Brown, shared many interests that particularly consisted of music and the arts. Unfortunately, Brown died in 1945, only a few years after her husband.
