A thorough knowledge of his subject, and excellent speaker, masterful logician, amost effective and skillful debater, unbounded enthusiasm, and a deep concern for and dedication to improve 'the common welfare' -- all this and a kind warm heart, a twinkle in his eye and a half smile -- all this was Harry Gunnison Brown."

    "[He] barely quibbled with 'Progress and Poverty's' analysis. Though admitting that the reform would 'rob the landholders', he was willing to 'confess we see no other means by which the laborers can ultimately better their condition, and Mr. George's plan is one of the least objectionable means of that character."

(San Francisco)
  • 1998 - Comment on by Stanley Sapiro. Reprinted from GroundSwell, January-February:

    "San Francisco Mayor Willie l. Brown, Jr. got his start in politics by defeating a dedicated follower of Henry George, Edward Gaffney, for his Assembly seat. But Brown, too, embraced the Single Tax idea, and introduced a bill calling for local options on exempting buildings from property taxes. He became an all-powerful Speaker of the California Assembly, after which he became somewhat cool to Henry George's ideas. Possibly, this was related to his law firm's getting such unexpected clients as the Southern Pacific Railroad Company, the biggest landowner in the State (owning over 2 million acres)."
