Doris Pike White home, 29 Main Street, Lubec, 1975

Contributed by Lubec Historical Society


This mansard-roofed house was once the Doris Pike White (1896-1987) home. A daughter of Lubec’s Chester and Lottie (Avery) Pike, Doris White was a member of the D. A. R. from 1937 until her death, at times its national president. An investment banker with Pierce, White and Drummond in Bangor, she also served six years on the Maine Judicial Council.

The house passed into ownership of Judith P. Sulzberger (1923-2011) who served as a director of the New York Times from 1974 until 2000. Dr. Sulzberger, a physician, was a member of the Ochs-Sulzberger family dynasty, which acquired controlling interest in the Times in 1896.

Professionally a researcher in addition to clinical and private practice, she endowed the Judith P. Sulzberger Genome Center at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, her alma mater.
