DURHAM, N.C. -- Paul J. Dumas, director of police at Duke University for 24 years, died at his home Friday after a long illness. He was 67.

He retired in 1995, a year after he won the University Medal for Distinguished Meritorious Service - Duke's highest honor.

Dumas, a native of Maine, started as Duke's police chief in 1971, when Terry Sanford was university president and campuses across the country were in turmoil.
