The effect of Fe doping (<20%) on the Mn site in the ferromagnetic ((Formula presented)) and the antiferromagnetic ((Formula presented)) phases of (Formula presented) has been studied. The same ionic radii of (Formula presented) and (Formula presented) cause no structure change in either series, yet conduction and ferromagnetism have been consistently suppressed by Fe doping. Colossal magnetoresistance has been shifted to lower temperatures, and in some cases enhanced by Fe doping. Doping with Fe bypasses the usually dominant lattice effects, but depopulates the hopping electrons and thus weakens the double exchange.
