Jeanne H. Feinberg

Concert organizer

Jeanne Harriet Feinberg, who was executive director of the Shriver Hall Concert Series at the Johns Hopkins University for 13 years, died Sept. 16 of heart failure at her home in Easton.

Mrs. Feinberg, who was 84 and had lived in Easton since 1983, received a citation for her work from the president of Hopkins at the last concert of the 1983 season.

After moving to Easton, she organized a lunchtime concert series at the Easton Academy of the Arts.

Before taking the Hopkins post in 1970, she was a founder of the Baltimore Choral Arts Society and the Baltimore Chamber Music Society.

The former Jeanne Harriet Gruber was born in Russia but reared in Baltimore, where she attended public schools.

A member of the Baltimore Hebrew Congregation, she was a librarian for the Enoch Pratt Free Library before her marriage in 1934 to Harry Feinberg, chairman of the board of Duron Inc., a paint company.

In addition to her husband, her survivors include two daughters, Charlotte Isabelle Feinberg-Brody of Bethesda and Trudi Emily Cohen of Charlotte, Vt.; a son, Robert Samuel Feinberg of Bethesda; two sisters, Doris Fishman of Baltimore and Sylvia Kadish of Rockville; and six grandchildren.

Services for Mrs. Feinberg were private, but the family suggested memorial contributions to the American Cancer Society or the Easton Academy of the Arts.

G. Howard Dawson

Retired bank auditor

G. Howard Dawson, a retired auditor for First National Bank and a former president and chairman of the board of the Archer Laundry and Dry Cleaning Co., died Sunday at a hospital in Bunnell, Fla., after an apparent heart attack.

Services for Mr. Dawson, 73, who moved from Towson to Palm Coast, Fla., seven years ago, were conducted yesterday at St. Mark's by the Sea Lutheran Church in Palm Coast.

He retired from First National just before moving to Florida. He had worked at the bank since 1974 when the family-owned Archer firm was closed. The city bought the Archer plant on Eutaw Street so that Madison Street could be extended to McCulloh Street.

The Baltimore native was a graduate of City College and the University of Baltimore.

He belonged to the Ascension Evangelical Lutheran Church of Baltimore County and was a member of the Country Club of Maryland. In Florida, he was a member of the Palm Harbor Golf Club.

He is survived by his wife, the former Margaret Federline; a daughter, Judith Cobb of Norfolk, Va.; a son, Barton H. Dawson )) of Edmond, Okla.; two sisters, Genevieve Manley of Ellicott City and Lorraine Crosby of Timonium; and five grandchildren.

James W. Flattery

Professional golfer

James W. Flattery, known as Jimmy in his years as a golf professional and founder of a junior tournament named for him, died Sunday of cancer at his home in Lutherville.

A Mass of Christian burial for Mr. Flattery, 78, was to be celebrated at 10 a.m. today at St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church, 101 Church Lane in Texas.

He retired in 1976 as the professional at the Forest Park Golf Course, a post he held since the end of his World War II naval service.

However, he continued to teach golf first at the Longview Golf Course and then at the Hunt Valley Golf Club, where he continued to work until about six months ago.

For many years, until he formally turned it over to the professional at Hunt Valley, he also operated the annual Jimmy Flattery Tournament with classes for youth as young as 2.

Many professionals, including Carol Mann, who is in the Ladies Professional Golf Association Hall of Fame, played in his tournaments.

It was a sport in which he was active since his childhood in Peabody, Mass., where he worked at golf courses as a boy and served as captain of the high school golf team. He also won a state title at age 14.

He became a professional at age 18 and worked at clubs in Peabody and New Rochelle, N.Y., starting his tournaments while working in Peabody. In 1936, he came to Baltimore and became assistant professional at what is now the Country Club of Maryland and then at the Baltimore Country Club, where he remained until he entered the Navy.

His wife, the former Elizabeth Bowden, died in 1988.

He is survived by four sisters, Harriet Carr of Salem, Mass., Alice Sullivan of El Paso, Texas, and Mary Carroll and Lillian Tomeo, both of Beverly, Mass.; and 14 nieces and nephews.

Elsa A. Cruickshank, a native of Baltimore, died Sunday of heart failure in a nursing home in Chattanooga, Tenn.

Graveside services for Mrs. Cruickshank, who was 92 and had lived in Chattanooga for 25 years, were conducted yesterday.

Serving as a volunteer, the former Elsa A. Schroedl helped entertain soldiers during World War I and was an air raid warden during World War II.

Her husband, William J. Cruickshank, a customs agent, died in 1946.

She is survived by a daughter, Shirley Ann Byers of Signal Mountain, Tenn.; a son, William J. Cruickshank Jr. of Ellicott City; and three grandchildren.
