Daniel Boone Dugan

Insurance executive

Daniel Boone Dugan, a retired insurance executive, died Saturday of pneumonia at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center. He was 85.

He retired in 1980 as president of the insurance firm of Bland, Dugan & McMillan, which he had established in the early 1930s. The business was later acquired by Stump, Harvey & Cook.

Earlier, he had worked on Wall Street from 1927 to 1932, learning the brokerage business before returning to Baltimore.

Born and reared in Baltimore, he was descended from a family that included Charles Carroll of Carrollton and Archbishop John Carroll, the nation's first Roman Catholic bishop.

He studied at St. Mark's School and was a 1927 graduate of Calvert Hall College. He also studied at the University of Virginia.

The longtime Roland Park resident was active in Meals on Wheels and was a member of the Sons of the Revolution, the St. George's Society, the Bachelors Cotillon and the Elkridge and Maryland clubs.

He enjoyed reading, leading what his daughter, Anne I. Dugan of Baltimore, described as "an intellectual life."

"He was concerned with matters of the mind," she said. "He was also very involved with his family and was a marvelous friend. He was known for his ready smile and quick wit."

In 1936, he married the former Anne Iglehart Sanford, who died in 1972.

A memorial Mass was to be offered at 11 a.m. today at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, 5300 N. Charles St., Baltimore, where he was a communicant.

In addition to his daughter, survivors include a son, J. Sanford Dugan of Ann Arbor, Mich.; another daughter, Jennings Carroll Dugan of New York City; two brothers, Cumberland F. Dugan of San Antonio and John Carroll Dugan of Baltimore; a sister, Nora D. Denison of Baltimore; and two granddaughters.

The family suggested donations to a favorite charity.

Stephen D. Millman

Restaurant owner

Stephen D. Millman, a former college administrator who operated a South Baltimore restaurant, died Sunday of melanoma at the Meridian Nursing Center in Severna Park. The Arnold resident was 48.

At the time of his death, he was the proprietor of the Top Deck on Fort Avenue, which he purchased in 1992. He had been vice president of student affairs at the Community College of Baltimore from 1990 to 1992.

Dr. Millman moved to Maryland in 1972, when he became associate executive director of the State Board of Community Colleges, a position he retained until 1990.

The Saratoga Springs, N.Y., native was a 1968 graduate of the State University of New York at Buffalo and earned his master's degree from the University of Georgia in 1969. Four years later, he earned his Ph.D. in college administration from Pennsylvania State University.

"He was a people person who liked to build relationships with people," recalled his wife, the former Susan Levin, whom he married in 1969. Mrs. Millman is a real estate agent with Prudential Preferred Properties in Anne Arundel County.

"When he bought the Top Deck, it represented a career change, but he wanted to be his own boss. He had a really good head and was just an old softie -- a real sweetheart. He was a friend to everyone he met, and he would sit and listen to their stories," Mrs. Millman said.

He enjoyed collecting wines, neon artwork and Wurlitzer jukeboxes filled with 45 rpm records from the 1950s, his wife said.

"He was also a snappy dresser who wore the latest but not too-far-out fashions. He loved leather jackets and had seven of them in his closet," she said. "He also enjoyed smoking and collecting pipes."

In addition to his wife, survivors include a son, Judd Garrett Millman of Arnold; a brother, Henry Millman of Brockton, Mass.; a sister, Judy Millman Long of Albany, N.Y.; his mother, Gertrude Copans Millman of Saratoga Springs; and several nephews and nieces. Another son, Kyle Brenner Millman, died in 1989.

Services were conducted yesterday at Temple Beth Shalom, where Mr. Millman had served as president.

Memorial donations may be made to the Kyle Millman Memorial Playground Fund, Temple Beth Shalom, P.O. Box 59, Arnold 21012.
