In the 1943-45 log book of Don McBride, Donald listed his home address as:

Howard Dean, Jr.

Howard was called "Babu" by the Indians. Some sort of term of respect. Howard was an Operations Clerk for CNAC.

Howard Brush Dean Jr. was born in New York on Feb. 18, 1921 and died in Southampton, N.Y. on Aug. 23, 2001. He came from old New York money, but appears to have had something of an adventurous streak in him -- he dropped out of Yale after two years, worked for Pan Am Airways-Africa from 1941-43, then CNAC from 1943-46. He then returned to the family fold, got married in 1947, and became a very successful stockbroker in New York, living on Park Avenue and with a summer home in East Hampton. He had four sons, one of whom, Charlie, inherited that adventurous streak -- he and a friend were trekking around the world when they were captured and killed by Laotian Communists in 1974. Another son, Howard Brush Dean III, has been governor of Vermont since 1991 and is now running for president.
