Don died Oct. 31, 2009, in Alpharetta, Ga.
He prepared at White Plains (N.Y.) High School and Phillips Exeter Academy. At Princeton he majored in the SPIA. He was on the freshman soccer and gym squads, was assistant business manager of The Daily Princetonian, roomed with Ralph Hill, and joined Cloister Inn.
Enlisting in April 1942, Don completed Officer Candidate School and was assigned to the 404th Field Artillery Battalion. The division was trained for action in the Pacific theater, but when the Battle of the Bulge erupted, the men were rushed to Europe. Returning to the States in 1946, they were transferred to the Pacific, where Don was discharged as a major.
He returned to work in personnel at Sharp & Dohme and took courses at night at Temple University before transferring to Ohio State, where he earned a Ph.D. in psychology in 1952. He then joined Prudential but left to teach at Case Western Reserve University for three years before joining AT&T. Subsequently, he moved to the University of Georgia as professor and chairman of the applied psychology program, retiring in 1987.
Don is survived by his former wife, Scarvia Anderson Grant.
