Logan Wilson, 83, the former president and chancellor of the University of Texas who issued the order to racially integrate the university's academic programs, died of lung cancer Nov. 7.
Wilson presided over the university from 1952 to 1961. He ordered the university to open all academic programs to black students in 1956.
The university was the first in the South to integrate its programs, but its dormatories remained segregated well into the 1960s.
Wilson left the university in 1961 to become president of the American Council of Education in Washington. He retired from that job in 1971 and returned to Texas.
Hugh MacLennan, 83, one of Canada's foremost authors, died Nov. 7 at his home in Montreal. The cause of death was not reported.
Mr. MacLennan won the Governor General's Award five times, more than any other writer.
He wrote several nonfiction books and seven novels, including "Two Solitudes," whose title became a byword symbolizing the tensions between French and English Canadians.
He was a native of Nova Scotia and had lived in Montreal since 1935. A Rhodes scholar, he received a PhD in classics from Princeton University and had taught at McGill University.
Tom Clancy, 67, an actor and member of folk music's influential Clancy Brothers, died of cancer Nov. 7 at a hospital in Cork, Ireland.
Mr. Clancy served as a radio officer in the Royal Air Force during World War II. After the war, he acted in British Shakespearean repertory theater before moving to New York City, where he acted in Broadway and off-Broadway plays.
It was there, in 1959, that he and his brothers, Paddy and Liam, and a friend, Tommy Makem, formed their singing group. Mr. Clancy also had appeared in the film "Airport" and television series "Starsky and Hutch," "Little House on the Prairie" and the "Incredible Hulk."
