Clyde Doran dies
Clyde Doran, a pioneer in Hawai‘i’s hotel industry, died Friday night at his home in Honolulu. He was 85.
Clyde Doran came to Hawai‘i in 1952 and said he’d never leave.
He had been diagnosed in April with cancer, said his daughter, Merrily Labarthe of Atlanta.
“He was a fine man and a good friend,” said Nancy Quinn, former first lady of Hawai‘i and longtime friend of the Doran family. “And he was very brave through his illness.”
Doran came to Hawai‘i in 1952 as a sales manager for United Airlines. In 1956, he declined a promotion that would have meant a transfer to Chicago, leaving the airline to begin a long affiliation with InterIsland Resorts and what is now the Hilton Hawaiian Village.
“He said there was no way he’d leave Hawai‘i,” said Quinn. “He and Mugs (Margaret, Doran’s first wife) loved Hawai‘i.”
In 1958, Doran left InterIsland to join what was then Kaiser’s Hawaiian Village Hotel, and served as Henry J. Kaiser’s general sales manager. He left the next year to become the president of Manpower Inc.
He went back to the Hawaiian Village in 1961 as vice president for marketing. The hotel was then owned by Hilton, and in 1968 he was promoted to vice president and general manager.
In 1970 he moved back to InterIsland Resorts, where he served as vice president for marketing until 1979, when he became executive vice president and chief operating officer.
Doran’s wife Margaret died in 1979, and in 1984 he married Jean Beardmore of Vancouver, British Columbia.
When Doran retired in 1985, the couple split their time between Hawai‘i and Vancouver, spending summers in Canada.
In addition to his wife, Jean, and daughter Merrily Labarthe, Doran is survived by a son, Michael of Honolulu, and four grandchildren: Kelly Eggers of Hailey, Idaho; Kyle Doran of Maui; Katie Doran of New York; and Genevieve Labarthe of San Francisco.
Quinn said her fondest memories of her friend involved Sunday morning games of table tennis.
“He was just like an Irishman,” Quinn said. “He was happy and jolly, but when something went wrong he got mad. Irishmen are like that, you know. I’m married to one. They get over it quickly.”
Doran served on the board of directors of the American Hotel and Motel Association. He was president of the Hawai‘i Hotel Association in 1970.
He was director of the board of the Waikiki Improvement Association in the late 1970s and chairman of the marketing committee for the Hawai‘i Visitors Bureau in the early 1980s.
He was born in Spokane, Wash., in 1915 and served as a lieutenant commander in the Navy Reserve in 1942-1946.
Labarthe said that in lieu of flowers, the family suggested that donations be sent to the St. Francis Hospice, American Cancer Society or Honolulu Aquarium.
Family and friends will honor Doran at 5 p.m. next Sunday at Wai‘alae Country Club, Labarthe said.
Doran will be cremated at Ultimate Cremation Services of Hawai‘i.
