After the death of Walter A. Brown, the Celtics' ownership was split 50/50 between minority owner Louis Pieri and Brown's widow Marjorie Brown. Brown and Pieri sold their interest in the Celtics on June 24, 1965 to the Ruppert Knickerbocker Brewing Company, a subsidiary of Marvin Kratter's National Equities.
