JAMES DOUGLAS HALVORSON
World Trade Center
METICULOUS IN WORK AND PLAY
As a managing director at Marsh & McLennan, the insurance brokerage company where he worked for 30 years, James Douglas Halvorson was meticulous in structuring complex deals for construction projects in Pakistan, Indonesia and other third world countries. He was similarly methodical in his pleasures.
When he decided to run in the New York City Marathon about 10 years ago, for example, he cut back on the good meals and wines that he loved. "He was very meticulous about keeping to his training schedule," said his son, Douglas James Halvorson. "He was totally focused on the job at hand. It was the only marathon he ever did, and he was very proud of doing it." Douglas James Halvorson said his father, an avid Giants fan, had season tickets near the 50-yard line, and had a system for attending games, sometimes with his wife, Maureen, and often with his son. He would arrive by 11:30 a.m., park right by the Stadium Club entrance and eat lunch there at a table just to the left of the bar ‹ usually a turkey sandwich, "lite mayo on whole wheat toast," his son said.
As for the game, much as he liked the action, Mr. Halvorson, 56, would usually leave at the end of the third quarter. "He wanted to beat the rush," his son said. "He had it all rigged." Profile published in THE NEW YORK TIMES on November 18, 2001.
