It's not a problem that the fields are "mismatched," but I would echo the questions posed by Ben Abrahamse.
I have some other questions.  Aren't we supposed to document a source for expanding an abbreviated name?  There's not much else Wm. could stand for, but nevertheless, the 100 $q and 378 might have to go, and then the 400 would go too.
LC practice is not to add the 100 $q if there is no conflict.  I think it was announced that PCC would leave it to cataloger's judgment, though it's not showing in PS 9.19.1.4.  If you can't document what it stands for, I wouldn't add the qualifier.
The Wikipedia 670 seems more appropriate for the NAR of the association.  It doesn't say anything about Brown.
