  • I was informed by an email from Austin W Spencer that : "...[Douglas] has a six-generation ahnentafel in _The American Genealogist_, 55 (1979): 115-17. It gives full names for his ancestors, but only year dates of birth and death. There are places mentioned for most individuals, but these are not necessarily locations of birth, marriage, and death."

After his retirement he wrote a series of articles about San Juan while editor of the Index newspaper."

The trustees hired him and he retained the position for a long time."
