After his second-place performance in the pentathlon, he placed fourth in the decathlon – actually third and fifth if Thorpe's scores are included. Donahue was initially a very productive realtor in the Los Angeles area, selling the block on Wilshire Boulevard on which The May Company was built. He later spent much of his life as a treasurer for the Wright Aeronautical Corp. of Paterson, New Jersey.
