Donald C. McDonald never stopped learning. Los Altos’ unofficial town historian was a true Renaissance man, equally conversant in the sciences and the arts. Buoyed by an insatiable curiosity, he inhaled information with boundless enthusiasm.
Mr. McDonald, named the Town Crier’s 2010 Los Altan of the Year, died June 23, surrounded by family and friends. Mr. McDonald was 98, one month short of his 99th birthday.
