Multi Billionaire John W. Brown, former CEO and Chairman of the Board of Stryker Corporation graduated from Auburn in 1957 but I cannot find him in this yearbook.
I could be wrong on some of these, this was a very, very long time ago and most of my information came from the internet which is not always 100% accurate. There are other notable people in this yearbook too. I could not possibly list all of the neat things and people I found while performing my research.
