Mr. Doan was born May 5, 1924, in Memphis, TN to John Frank Doan and Ruth Lester Doan; his siblings included an older brother, John Frank Doan, Jr. and an older sister, Harriet Doan Govan; and friend, George Wilson Coxwell, all deceased.

As a life member of the American Institute of Architects, Mr. Doan was associated with various architectural firms throughout his career including the firm that designed Rockefeller Center and the United Nations Building as well as firms involved with additions and renovations of the State Capitol in Tallahassee and The Breakers in Palm Beach. After serving for three years in Patton’s Army through the Battle of the Bulge, Mr. Doan attended Cornell University in the College of Architecture where he was a
