James Theodore Douglas Jr., a retired real estate agent who owned Country Squire Realtors, died Dec. 18 of colon cancer at the Anne Arundel Medical Center. He was 76.

Born in Baltimore, he grew up in the Hamilton area and attended city schools. In the late 1930s, he attended Johns Hopkins University for three years, then joined the Army.


During World War II, he was a sergeant in the Army's military intelligence department and served in England and Normandy from 1943 to 1945.
