Biographical Note

Doub was a member of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) from 1971 to 1974. During his tenure at the AEC, the commission reorganized and restructured the agency's regulatory program. He directed an agency report, "Federal Energy Regulation: An Organizational Study," that recommended a number of practical changes designed to increase the agency's ability to respond more quickly to changes in technology and economic conditions.
Doub was a Republican Party candidate for statewide office in his native Maryland. He held a number of appointed positions there (including chairman of the Maryland Public Service Commission) before assuming his role at the AEC.
