Standish Montgomery Douglas ’39

Published in Oct. 25, 1995, issue

Mont died Aug. 1994 at a hospital near the nursing home in Hollywood, Fla., where he had been living since 1991.

Mont spent the first years of his working career in sales and administration in real estate and insurance. In 1957 he joined the staff of St. Paul's School in Garden City, N.Y., where he served as registrar until 1963. That same year, his marriage to Gypsy Boag ended with her untimely death. They had two children, William and Patricia. Seven years later he married Mary Maurer.

For several years, he acted as superintendent of grounds and buildings for Mary's real-estate units. By the time of our 50th reunion, he wrote that he was retired and still an avid golfer with a six handicap.

Mont is survived by William and Patricia, eight grandchildren, two stepchildren, and three step-grandchildren. To them all, we offer our sincere sympathy.
