Charles B. McCoy, 85, Executive And Ex-Chairman of Du Pont

By LESLIE EATON
Published: January 18, 1995 NY Times

Charles B. McCoy, who as chairman and president of E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Company helped turn a family-run company into a modern corporation, died on Monday at Stonegates, a retirement home in Greenville, Del. He was 85.

The cause was Alzheimer's disease, from which he had suffered since 1989, said his son Robert, of Wilmington, Del.

When Charles McCoy became president of Du Pont in 1967, he was only the second chief executive of the giant chemical company who was not related to the founding du Pont family. He became chairman in 1971.

Mr. McCoy retired in 1973 but remained a member of the board until 1987. He also served on the boards of several other large corporations, including the Bethlehem Steel Corporation, TRW Inc. and Citicorp.
