Frazier Yearley, a retired American Express manager and World War II veteran, died of cardiovascular disease Saturday at Keswick Multi-Care Center. The North Baltimore resident was 90.

Born in Baltimore and raised in Roland Park, he was a 1936 City College graduate. He attended the Johns Hopkins University and left in his senior year to volunteer for military service.

He joined the Army Air Forces and served with the 322nd Troop Carrier Command in Australia, New Guinea, the Philippines, Okinawa and Japan, family members said.

After the war, he joined the American Express Co. in New York. He managed offices in England, Germany, France and Okinawa. He later returned to Baltimore and worked for the Social Security Administration at Woodlawn. He retired nearly 30 years ago.

Mr. Yearley read several books a week.

Private services were held yesterday.

Survivors include a brother, Dorsey Yearley; a sister, Mallory Yearley, both of Baltimore; and 10 nieces and nephews.
