58, a two-time Academy Award-winning producer of war movies who also directed the film debuts of Robert Redford and George Hamilton, died Dec. 10 at his home in San Diego. The cause of death was not reported.
He directed Redford's movie debut in the 1962 film about the Korean War, "War Hunt," which starred John Saxon, and Hamilton's first film, "Crime and Punishment," in 1959. Mr. Sanders' Oscar-winning films were "A Time Out of War," a 1950s antiwar short film based on a Civil War incident, and "Czechoslovakia, 1968," a 1970 documentary.
75, who drew the comic strip "Terry and the Pirates" from 1947 until it was discontinued in 1973, died Dec. 13 at a hospital in New Milford, Conn. The cause of death was not reported.
Mr. Wunder, a former artist with the Associated Press, was selected by the Chicago Tribune-New York News Syndicate to take over the comic strip after the syndicate had a disagreement with Milton Caniff, the strip's creator. Mr. Wunder drew it until 1973, when he became ill and the syndicate was unable to find a replacement.
80, who wrote the 1930s hit "The Object of My Affection" and dozens of other tunes during a two-decade career, died Dec. 12 at a hospital in North Hollywood, Calif., after a heart attack.
Mr. Tomlin toured the country for more than a decade with his own band, writing along the way such songs as "The Love Bug Will Bite You if You Don't Watch Out," "Lost and Found," "Love Is All," "If It Wasn't for the Moon," "What's the Reason?" and "That's What You Think." He later owned an oil and gas drilling business.
DR. CAREY STANTON,
64, who set aside his medical practice to dedicate his life to preserving Santa Cruz Island, the largest of the five Channel Islands off the Los Angeles coast, died Dec. 8 on the island. The cause of death was not reported.
He inherited 90 percent of the 61,000-acre island from his father in 1957. Under a 1978 agreement, he left the property to the Nature Conservancy, a private, nonprofit organization based in Arlington, which will maintain it as a private natural and historic preserve. A Santa Barbara family owns 10 percent of the island, and that portion eventually is to be acquired by the National Parks Service.
91, who helped found the National Council on Aging and who advised four presidents as a delegate to the White House Conference on the Aging, died Dec. 13 in Rochester, N.Y. The cause of death was not reported.
He was a chemist with the Eastman Kodak Co. for 42 years. Mr. Meyer was a native of Rochester and attended Cornell University and the University of Rochester.
F. GORDON BOYCE,
70, who was president of The Experiment in International Living, a student exchange program, from 1950 to 1974, died Wednesday in Brattleboro, Vt. The cause of death was not reported.
