  • Fullerton's First 100 Years: "Family of Julian Martin Brower as recalled by daughter, Maree Brower Cooper.
    Julian was born in August, 1887. He was the second child, first son, of Martin I. Brower and Ella Clark Brower. He graduated (or not?) from Fullerton High School in 1905. He with other members of his class refused to give an oration at that time required of all graduating seniors. In this stance he evidently had the support of his father, however, diplomas were withheld from those not giving orations.
    After leaving school he was taken on a long trip to the west coast by his father. The two of them traveled extensively in California that summer (one year before the San Francisco earthquake of 1906) visiting friends and relatives as they went.
    Julian worked one year near Worland, Wyoming, on land owned then by his Father. He returned to Nebraska to attend Business College in Lincoln. Later he became associated with his father in the Fullerton National Bank, becoming president of that bank upon the death of his father in 1920. He served as president 36 years retiring in 1956.
    Julian married Elsie Nissen of Aurora, Nebraska, in 1916. Elsie had been employed as clerk and buyer for the Krasne Department Store in Fullerton. They had two children: Maree 1917, Robert 1919.
    Robert attended University of Nebraska where he studied petroleum geology. He left school a few units short of graduation to enlist in the Navy Air Corps, when it had become apparent that the United States was about to become involved in World War II. He served in the States, in the Aleutians, and was later based on Okinawa. His plane was shot down off Okinawa in the summer of 1945. He had met and married Ben Rockefeller of Seattle Washington, while he was in the States. Their son, Peter Robert, born to them December 1944, was never seen by Bob.
    Maree attended the University of Nebraska, and graduated from Hastings College, Hastings, Nebraska summa cum laude. She served with American Red Cross overseas during World War II: New Guinea, Biak, The Philippines, Japan. She returned to get her Master's Degree in Social Group Work at Western Reserve University,Cleveland, Ohio. She married Eugene L. Cooper, son of Leland and Hattie Cooper of Fullerton, Nebraska, in 1950. They had three children: Robert Jean, 1952, Sandra Maree, 1955, Michael Julian, 1958.
    Their family moved to Fremont, California, 1960. Elsie died in 1962. Julian now lives in Fremont, California, near the home of his daughter. November, 1979."1
