Walter A. Brown (February 10, 1905 – September 7, 1964) was the original owner of the Boston Celtics as well as an important figure in the development of ice hockey in the United States.


He was born in Hopkinton, Massachusetts and attended Boston Latin School from 1922 to 1923 and Philips Exeter Academy from 1923 to 1926.


Brown also played an important role in the development of hockey; he coached the amateur Boston Olympics to five Eastern Hockey League championships and guided the USA to its first gold medal in the Ice Hockey World Championships in 1933. In 1951, he bought the financially strapped Boston Bruins; he had been the Bruins' landlord since becoming the Garden's manager. He served as the president of the International Ice Hockey Federation from 1954 to 1957.
