The Big Bang Theory Wiki

Elliot Douglas, Ph.D., is a character in Young Sheldon. He worked as an astrophysicist for NASA but retired sometime prior to 1989. His wife, Flora Douglas, was the head of the Wilmot Academy for Gifted Children, a private school in Dallas, Texas. The couple had been hosting a student for the last several years who had recently graduated, leaving a guest room available in their home for Sheldon Cooper while he was enrolled at the school. Though both were allergic to dogs to the initial delight of their young charge, the prodigy was later haunted by the memory of the three of them gathered around the piano, singing hippie folk music. Thus, the role of Elliot in Sheldon's studies came to an abrupt end.
