He studied both at Reed and at Yale to be a communications officer and served in India. After World War II, he earned a BS in plant science from the University of California, Davis, and worked with his father in a fruit business, E.F. Pinkham and Son. In 1952, he married Helen Walter; they had a son and two daughters. Don was a member of the local school board, a volunteer with the Mineral King Preservation Society, and later a stockbroker with Dean Witter Reynolds.
