Former Columbia attorney and longtime community banker Beverly Douglas, Jr., passed away Wednesday, The Columbia Daily Herald reports. He was 92. Born in Nashville in 1926, Douglas was much admired for his intelligence and the genuine interest he took in other people’s lives. He received his law degree from Vanderbilt University in 1950 and practiced law with the Nashville firm Douglas and Douglas before joining the US Navy and serving as an intelligence officer during the Korean War in 1951. It was in 1956 when Douglas arrived in Columbia to practice law with MacFarland, Colley and Douglas. A celebration of life will take place at 11 a.m. tomorrow at First Presbyterian Church, 801. S. High St., with visitation prior to the service beginning at 10 a.m.
