Milton Leroy Davidson Jr., a retired internal auditor for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, died Friday of cancer at his home in Annapolis. He was 70.

Mr. Davidson, who was known as Mickey, had worked for the agency for more than 20 years. Earlier, he worked about five years for P. Ballantine & Sons brewery as a salesman.

Mr. Davidson was a sports fan who loved baseball and lacrosse. He coached sandlot baseball for the Annapolis Recreation and Parks Department for 12 years and had been active in the St. Mary's Athletic Association. As a teen-ager, Mr. Davidson played sandlot and varsity baseball.

He was reared in the Govans section of Baltimore, lived in Arbutus for a few years, then moved to Annapolis in 1960. Mr. Davidson was a 1943 graduate of Polytechnic Institute and in the late 1960s studied accounting at the University of Maryland College Park.

During World War II, he served in the 8th Army Air Corps.

He is survived by his wife of 39 years, the former Mary Virginia Gibson; two sons, Scott L. Davidson of Pasadena and Lee C. Davidson of Reisterstown; and two grandchildren.

The family suggested memorial donations to Eastport United Methodist Church, 926 Bay Ridge Ave., Annapolis 21403; the Hospice of Anne Arundel Medical Center, Franklin and Cathedral streets, Annapolis 21401; or the American Cancer Society. James I. Glendinning Jr., a retired military intelligence officer and computer specialist, died Jan. 13 of a heart attack while visiting relatives in Meridian, Miss. He was 77.

After a military career that began with his graduation from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1939, Mr. Glendinning retired with the rank of lieutenant colonel from the intelligence staff at Atlantic Fleet headquarters in Norfolk, Va., in 1959.

He moved to Annapolis in 1963 and became a computer programmer for John I. Thompson Co. in Rockville. Later, he was a systems analyst for Vitro Corp., a Rockville-based defense contractor. He retired from there in 1982.

Mr. Glendinning, who was born and reared in Fort Collins, Colo., was commissioned in the Marine Corps after graduating from the Naval Academy. He served in World War II and was awarded a Bronze Star during service in the Korean War.

In the 1950s, he trained recruits as an instructor in Quantico, Va.

In 1941, he and Lemira "Skeets" Jacobsen were married. She died in 1983. Mr. Glendinning was a member of the Naval Academy's alumni and athletic associations.

Darrell K. Carter

Md. government worker

Darrell K. Carter, a state government employee who also acted in local theater, died Jan. 15 of a brain aneurysm at University of Maryland Medical Center. He was 35.

Mr. Carter, a service representative for the Maryland Department of Economic and Employee Development, had acted with several local troupes, including Family Circle Theater and Actors Against Drugs.

He worked as an actor for the Kaiser-Permanente health maintenance organization from 1986 until 1990 and performed skits for children in the Maryland, Washington, Virginia area about health, safety and AIDS.

He began acting as a teen-ager, said his brother, Kim M. Carter of Baltimore.

"I always knew he would be an actor," he said. "When he was 7 years old, he would take his Super 8 movie camera, and write, direct and produce films of his playmates."

Mr. Carter had attended Morgan State University after earning a high school equivalency diploma, his brother said.

Services were to be held at 10:30 a.m. today at the City Temple of Baltimore Baptist, 317 Dolphin St.

Other survivors include his mother, Charlotte Carter; three other brothers, George K. Carter, James E. Carter III and Dale J. Carter; and several nieces and nephews, all of Baltimore.

Memorial donations may be made to the Save-A-Heart Foundation.
