Stanley Brown-Serman’s photography was used to illustrate an article written by his father, the Rev. Williams Brown-Serman. A Mountain Lake Idyll was published in 1905 by Four-Track News in New York City.

Stanley (1883-1955) was a man of many talents. He followed his father into the ministry and was on the faculty of the Virginia (Episcopal) Theological Seminary. When the original rectory on St. Hubert’s Isle burned down the summer of 1914, Stanley designed the present rectory save for the staircase to the second floor as well as the long dining room table still in use today.

He published several books and articles on theology. His two daughters, Mary and Betty, summered on Indian Point for many years through the 1990s and spoke at the 1st Annual Durant Days in 1999, providing many stories of life on St. Hubert’s during the 1920s and 30s.

Sadly, in 1942 their brother Arthur Stanley Brown-Serman lost his life at age 20 training for WWII, his name inscribed on the wall of Harvard Memorial Chapel, Class of 1944. Also in 1941 Stanley’s teaching schedule at Virginia Theological Seminary changed to 12 months a year due to the war and the family had to end their 47-year association with the Church of the Good Shepherd, Raquette Lake.
