Jeraldine 'Jerry' Brown was born and raised in Oklahoma City and is of Chickasaw descent, her grandfather being the first secretary of the Chickasaw Tribe legislature. She enrolled at Oklahoma State University (then OAMC) in 1939 to study education and business. Among her numerous jobs in college, she worked in Murray Hall dining and tutored Latin to high school students. She vividly remembers the attack on Pearl Harbor (which would play a large role in her life shortly thereafter), and she graduated in 1943 with a degree in education.
