Doug died peacefully of natural causes Aug. 26, 2003, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., where he had moved in 1981.

Born in NYC, he prepared at Pomfret School. At Princeton he was elected manager of the 150-lb. crew in 1936, and was a member of Cap and Gown Club. He left college at the end of sophomore year and went to work for the Corn Exchange Bank & Trust Co.

During WWII, Doug served as a captain in the Army Air Force, thereafter returning to continue a 40-year banking career at the Discount Corp. and Franklin Savings Bank in NYC. He enjoyed his membership in senior golf, the Union and Anglers clubs, and Piping Rock Club, where he served as treasurer. He was an active member of St. John's of Lattingtown Church.

Survivors include his wife, Alison Brewster Fairchild; sons John D. and Peter L.; and six grandchildren, to all of whom the class extends deep sympathy for their loss.
