Daniel Macdougald Jr. ’43

Published in Dec. 6, 2000, issue

Dan died on July 21, 2000. He was 79.

An Atlanta native, he prepped for Princeton at the Episcopal H.S. in Alexandria, Va. After graduation, he served in the navy until 1946 as a gunnery officer aboard USS Bradford, a destroyer which saw heavy action in the Pacific.

Dan earned his LLB from the U. of Georgia school of law in 1948, after which he practiced with his father and the firm of MacDougald, Troutman, Sams and Schroeder.

For the past 35 years, Dan devoted himself to research and development of a program of character education and offender rehabilitation known as Emotional Maturity Instruction, and later as Laws of Living. Many thousands of people bettered their lives and turned away from delinquency and substance abuse because of Dan's initiatives.

While on campus, he majored in politics, rooming at various times with Don Jordan, Lew Reisner, A. C. Armstrong, and Bill Hedberg.

Dan is survived by his wife, June; six children, Dan III, Nancy M. Albert, Ann M. Ratthaus, Harry W., Mary Catherine Brooks, and Cynthia Czaja.

To the entire family, we extend our sincere condolences.
