Charles S. Davis Jr. ’36

Published in the July16, 2008, issue

He prepared for Princeton at Choate, and at Princeton, he majored in economics. Shortly after graduating, he married Elizabeth Mary Blood in Detroit. They had two children, Elizabeth Grace Davis and Charles S. Davis III.

Charles started his career in Detroit with Borg-Warner Corp. He eventually became vice president and general manager of the Borg Heat Division. He was a member of the Country Club of Detroit, the Fine Arts Society, Bay View Yacht Club, and the Players Club.

At various times in his life, Charles had homes in Grosse Point Farms and Northport, Mich., and Fort Lauderdale and North Palm Beach, Fla.

Later in life Charles established a niche for himself as an author-playwright. In private letters he expressed strong disagreement with several of Princeton’s policies. He was, however, a good and loyal classmate. We join with his survivors in mourning his loss.
