Biography:Garry Brown (August 12, 1923-August 27, 1998) was a politician from the U.S. state of Michigan.

Brown was born in Schoolcraft, Michigan to a family with a political background in Michigan. His great-grandfather, Ebenezer Lakin Brown, and his grandfather, Addison Makepeace Brown, both served in the Michigan State Legislature.

During World War II, Brown served in the Twenty-fourth Infantry Division of the United States Army as second lieutenant in Japan. After the war, he worked for the FBI before earning a B.A. from Kalamazoo College in 1951 and a LL.B from George Washington University Law School in 1954. He was admitted to the bar in 1954 and commenced practice in Kalamazoo. He was commissioner of the United States District Court for the western district of Michigan, 1957-1962 and was a delegate to the Michigan constitutional convention of 1961-1962.

In 1966, Brown defeated incumbent Democrat Paul H. Todd, Jr. to be elected as a Republican to the U.S. House of Representatives from Michigan's 3rd District for the Ninetieth and to the five succeeding Congresses, serving from January 3, 1967 to January 3, 1979. He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1978, losing to Democrat Howard E. Wolpe. He resumed the practice of law and was a resident of Washington, D.C. until his death.
