Doug transferred to Princeton after spending one year at Colgate University. He was active in the Vietnam antiwar movement at Princeton and was a member of Tower Club. A lifelong struggle with bipolar disorder — a little-understood disease at the time — was also part of his undergraduate years.
After graduating in 1974, Doug was accepted at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in Piscataway, N.J., but continued to suffer bouts of illness. He eventually found work at Health Products Research while becoming a devoted hackathon participant and served on the board of a state agency in Hackensack, N.J., that helped homeless people with disabilities. Throughout his struggles, Princeton remained a beacon for Doug. He never missed Reunions and many class events.The class extends its sympathies to his survivors: his mother, Beverly; and his brother, Thomas.
