A memorial requiem Mass for William D. Donahoo, who had been an official of two Baltimore-area colleges, will be offered at 11 a.m. today at Mount Calvary Episcopal Church, 816 N. Eutaw St.

Dr. Donahoo, who was 66 and lived on Fleet Street, died of heart failure Tuesday at Mercy Medical Center.

He retired in 1979 as history professor and chairman of the history and philosophy departments at the University of Baltimore. He had joined the faculty there in 1968 after serving eight years as dean and president of the Baltimore College of Commerce.

After teaching history and English in Baltimore County schools for six years, he started his college teaching career in 1959 in Hartford, Conn., at Trinity College.

Born in Baltimore, he was a graduate of City College and Western Maryland College. He earned a master's degree and a doctorate from the Johns Hopkins University.

He was a member of Amnesty International.

Dr. Donahoo is survived by his wife, the former Frances A. Stankowski of Baltimore; two daughters, Ann Donahoo of Baltimore and Jessica Golomb of Pikesville; a son, Christopher Donahoo of Carney; and three grandchildren.
