Pilot Arthur K. Doolittle dies

Broomall, Pa. (UPI) – Arthur K. Doolittle, 85, World War I pilot and noted chemical engineer, has died at the Broomall Presbyterian Home.
Mr. Doolittle, a test pilot for the Sopwith Camel airplane, flew damaged planes from France to England for repairs during World War I. He left the U.S. Army in 1919 with the rank of colonel.
Mr. Doolittle, who died late Tuesday, earned a degree in chemical engineering and joined the Union Carbide Chemical Co. in Charleston, W.Va., after the war. He directed the company’s plastics research and left in 1959 to form Arcadia Institute, which researched liquid plastics.
Mr. Doolittle also taught chemistry at Drexel Institute in Philadelphia and at Princeton University.
A native of Oberlin, Ohio, [and a 1914 graduate of OHS,] Mr. Doolittle continued flying until the age of 76, with his wife, Dorothy [Dortha Bessie Bailey, OHS ‘14], as navigator and engineer.
He and his wife lived in Wallingford, Delaware County, before moving to the home last March.
Chicago Tribune, Chicago, Illinois, Friday, January 22, 1982.

Dortha Bessie (Bailey) Doolittle
Dortha Bailey Doolittle died July 15, 1982, at Broomall (Pa.) Presbyterian home, where she and her husband, the late Arthur K. Doolittle, lived since March 1981. An emerita professor of chemistry at Widener College (since 1970), she taught at Oberlin, Oxford College for Women in Ohio, Barnard, Kanawha and Morris Harvey Colleges, West Virginia Institute of Technology, Drexel, Miami U., Yale, U. of Illinois and several private secondary schools. Except for a four year period (1954-58) when she worked as a research assistant for her husband at Union Carbide in Charleston, W.Va., Mrs. Doolittle’s entire career was devoted to teaching.
Born in Oberlin, April 16, 1896, Mrs. Doolittle and her husband both graduated from Oberlin High School in 1914. After college [Oberlin College class of 1918], she did graduate work at U. Illinois, U. Mich., and was an Ellen H. Richards Fellow at M.I.T. 1922-23 and a Charles M. Hall Research Fellow at Oberlin 1944-45, at which time she worked as an assistant to Prof. Harry N. Holmes. She received the M.S. in n1920 from U. Illinois.
Mrs. Doolittle was listed in American Men and Women of Science, Who’s Who in American Education, Two Thousand Women of Achievement, and was listed in the third edition of Who’s Who of American Women. She was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Sigma Xi, Iota Sigma Pi, Chi Beta Phi and Delta Kappa Gamma. She was also a trustee of the Arcadia Institute for Scientific Research and served on several local and national committees of the American Chemical Society.
As an author, she had several articles published in chemistry journals and assisted in the edition of a 1071-page chemistry reference book written by her husband which was entitled, The Technology of Solvents and Plasticizers. Mrs. Doolittle also gave numerous papers on chemistry before technical groups.
For her dedication as an educator she received two awards from student groups at Widener in 1970 and three years later received the Alumni Association Citation from there.
For her steadfast involvement in Oberlin College and more specifically, in her own class activities, Mrs. Doolittle received the Alumni Association Certificate of Appreciation in 1979. She was then recognized for her accomplishment in encouraging her class to give a record breaking amount for the reunion giving program. She had been the backbone of the revitalization of the Henry Hudson Memorial Scholarship Program (hudson scholarships and how they grew, Fall 1979). The fund was established by the Class of 1918 in honor of their classmate who lost his life as a pilot in WWI. Since 1964 she coordinated the fund as a class project and came to Oberlin each fall to meet the recipients by inviting them to breakfast with her. When Mrs. Doolittle was elected president of the class at its 45th reunion, she found that the fund still totaled the same $2,500 that was contributed in 1923. She then reactivated the 1923 plan to increase the scholarship’s principal amount and at its 60th reunion the class had raised the funds to $168,541. The fund had grown to $173,670 when Mrs. Doolittle received her certificate and now provides five $1,200 scholarships per year.
In addition to working with this fund, she was a member of the Alumni Board (1967-70), class president (1963-68) and was class agent.
She was married to Arthur K. in 1923. He had received his education at Columbia and was a chemical engineer for Union Carbide and a consultant and professor at Drexel. Also born in Oberlin, he was the son of Frederick G. Doolittle, professor of violin and head of the violin department and Maude (Tucker ’91) Doolittle who was an instructor of piano in the Conservatory. Mr. Doolittle was a test pilot for the Sopwith Camel airplanes during WWI. He left the Army in 1919 with the rank of 2nd lieutenant and was made an honorary colonel in 1973. He continued flying until the age of 76 with Mrs. Doolittle as navigator and engineer. He died Jan. 19 in the Presbyterian Home.
Mrs. Doolittle leaves son Robert F. ’48 and daughter Elizabeth Peckham ’49, eight grandchildren and her sister, Ruth ’29, of Elyria. A memorial service was held at Swarthmore Presbyterian Church with burial in Oberlin. Contributions may be made to the Swarthmore Presbyterian Church or the Oberlin College Class of 1918 Scholarship Fund.

Charles ''Chuck'' Allan Dudley
Charles ''Chuck'' Allan Dudley, 84, died suddenly at his home with his family nearby on Sunday (July 29, 2007). Chuck was born in Oberlin, OH on May 9th 1923, son of Ben and Catherine Campbell Dudley. [He graduated from OHS in 1941.] His love for helping people was surpassed only by his love for his family and his wife of 60 years, Shirley Martin Dudley.
During World War II, First Lieutenant Dudley was a P-47 combat pilot and served his country faithfully and loyally for over two years. He was a member of the famed Zemke's Wolf Pack in the Eighth Air Force, 56th fighter group. His group was assigned bomber escort missions for the Eight Air force against German fighters. Their raids dangerously carried them over the heart of the German mainland. Chuck was a highly decorated combat pilot excelling in air-to-air and air-to-ground combat missions. His medals include the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal with 5 Oak Leaf Clusters and the European-African-Middle Eastern Service Medal. He flew combat sorties over Normandy Beach during D-Day and fought heroically during the Rhineland Campaign. After one dangerous mission over enemy territory, he successfully landed a heavily damaged aircraft and wrote it up as sustaining a ''slight oil leak.'' Chuck would carry that same sense of humor with him throughout his long happy life.
After being honorably discharged from the U.S. Army Air Corp in 1945 he returned to Colby College, in Waterville, ME. In 1947 Chuck graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in History. Much more importantly, he met his beloved future wife, Shirley Martin, at Colby College. They married on July 3, 1947 and spent the next 60 years together - whether flush or thin, good times or bad, they were always together. They called Windsor, home for 48 years. His five children will always call Windsor home, too.
He loved his family and community, and stayed very, very active in many organizations. He was a past president of the Greater Hartford Colby Association Group, the Exchange Club of Windsor, and the Anna Norris Elementary School PTA in East Hartford. He was a member of the Windsor Republican Town Committee and former District Captain, the American Legion in Windsor, and St. Gabriel's Church in Windsor. In addition, he was a Charter Member of the Jr. Chamber of Congress in East Hartford.
While his primary joy in life was family and friends he worked as a cost reduction analyst at Pratt and Whittney in East Hartford for 30 years. He retired in February 1981 and thoroughly enjoyed his ''retirement'' years.
Chuck was an avid golfer and card player. Bridge was his specialty. He enjoyed gardening and fixing things for people. He was a recognized expert in ''putting around'' the house and enjoyed ''sitting on the porch'' for hours wherever he went -- mostly visiting his five children and his many grandchildren.
Dad was an avid supporter of his kids. He coached many of them in Little League football, hockey and baseball. Over the years, he watched almost every one of their games. He leaves five beloved children and their spouses, and seven well-loved grandchildren, James Dudley of South Beach, FL; Laurel and Steve Nichisti of York, PA; Jon and Colleen Dudley of Pasadena, CA; Donna and John Fournier of Windsor, and William and Amy Dudley of Carmel, IN. His seven grandchildren are Michelle and Mark Fournier, Sean Dudley, Joseph and Ben Nichisti, Brittany and Caleb Dudley. Four wonderful nieces in the Ft. Lauderdale, FL area will miss him, Carolyn and Dave Grey, Kathy Moore, Susan Evans and Patty Maciejewski. Also, a nephew, Richard Dudley in Spokane, WA and a niece, Maryanne Ricktor in Ocala, FL.
Family and friends may gather on Thursday, August 2nd at 9 a.m. at the Carmon Windsor Funeral Home, 807 Bloomfield Ave, Windsor; followed by a Mass of Christian Burial 10 a.m. at St. Gabriel's Church, 379 Broad St., Windsor. Burial will follow at Cedar Hill Cemetery on the Wethersfield/Hartford line. His family will receive friends TODAY, August 1st from 5-8 p.m. at Carmon Funeral Home, Windsor. In Lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to St. Gabriel's Church, 379 Broad St., Windsor, CT 06095. Please visit us at www.carmonfuneralhome.com for online condolences.
