FAVORITE BOOK: He just finished

BACKGROUND: Douglas Schubot was
born and raised in Detroit. His parents
Baraga and the late Jules Schubot were
active in community affairs. His father
founded the namesake company in 1917
and traveled throughout the world
selling and buying jewelry.
Douglas Schubot has childhood
memories of meeting the illustrious
clientele of his father, including
Tennessee Williams, Lauren Bacall and
Tony Martin. His father also sold jewels
to the Grosse Pointe society crowd
which included the Fords, Fitzpatricks
and the Strohs. "We still sell to these
people today," said Mr. Schubot.
After completing the eighth grade at
Hampton School in Detroit, Mr. Schubot
attended military school in Florida. "I
wanted to go to military school. I liked
the discipline. I like wearing a shirt and
tie. I've been accused of cutting the
grass with a suite and tie on," he said.
He attended the University of
Michigan, then transferred to Michigan
State University for the ROTC program
during the Korean War. He graduated
from MSU in 1953, and served two
years with the United States Air Force
in Japan as an officer. While in Japan,
he managed to study one day a week
with a famous pearl dealer.
When Mr. Schubot returned home,
he worked with his in-laws in the
building business and on alternate days
he worked in the jewelry business.
Finding it difficult to split his time, he
choose jewelry. He began keeping the
books for the company and studied
accounting for three years at Walsh.
When his father died, Mr. Schubot
continued to run the family business
which is now in its third generation.
Mr. Schubot prides himself on
maintaining his father's high standards
of merchandising.
By observing his parents' and in-
laws' active roles in the Jewish
community, Mr. Schubot became active
in many causes, from Israel Bonds to
B'nai B'rith. He is also active in the
general community as a board member
of the Michigan Cancer Foundation and
Oakland Family Services. He and his
wife will be honored at the upcoming
Fashion Group benefit on Nov. 16. "We
want to support many causes because
we want to see something being done,"
he said. 111
