A life like Doug’s is the epitome of accomplishment. A virtual “resumé of the gods”. And a prime motivation for ‘the rest of us’ to make our own impact on the world and its culture. Thank you for inspiring me, Doug, and your good deeds on Earth will continue through Victoria’s work. 🙂
Douglas C. Dorrough, Ph.D. was born in Hawaii January 13, 1927. He left this world to those who knew and loved him on March 29, 2015. His career began when, at the age of 16, he won a scholarship to attend the Courant Institute at NYU. He went on to acquire diplomas at the University of Dayton, the University of Hawaii and North Carolina University, Chapel Hill. He had a long career focused on basic research in multiple fields and contributed substantially to the peer-reviewed literature. This site was created as a memorial to his life and his work.
He is survived by his wife, Victoria Adams, and his two sons David and Mark and their families. Please check out the In Memoriam page for preferred recipients of funds given in his honor.
