Baltimore — Long-time accessories industry veteran Ed Dougherty died on Feb. 11 from pneumonia and other lung complications.
Dougherty’s age remains a closely guarded secret.
Known throughout the industry as “an absolute character and legendary storyteller,” according to long-time colleague Jack Graham of Mizco, Dougherty was most recently a partner and executive VP of Laserline. He formerly held positions with Case Logic and Earhugger. Dougherty also held management positions at Capitol Records.
“When I write my book,” added Graham, “Ed gets one full chapter.”
He is survived by his son Thomas and daughter-in-law Map.
