Anthony Stanislas Albert Radziwill
Anthony Stanislas Albert Radziwill, 40, a television executive with HBO who had won Emmy and Peabody awards as a producer for ABC News, died of cancer Aug. 10 at New York Hospital. He was the son of Prince Stanislas Radziwill and Lee Bouvier Radziwill, whose sister was Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
He began his broadcasting career as an associate producer at NBC Sports at the 1988 Summer Olympic Games in Seoul and received an Emmy in sports journalism. In 1989, he joined ABC News as a producer on "Prime Time Live."
At ABC, he covered the Rodney King beating in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles riots and the O.J. Simpson trial. He won a Peabody Award in 1990 for his work on an investigation of the new Nazism in the United States. In 1997, he joined Time Warner's Home Box Office as vice president of documentaries.
Puey Ungphakorn, 83, a former Thai central bank governor and former head of Bangkok's Thammasat University who was considered a leading intellectual in that nation's postwar period, died July 28 at his home in London after a blood vessel burst in his abdomen.
He had lived in self-imposed exile since a 1976 coup, in which police and right-wing mobs killed scores of students staging a peaceful demonstration at the prestigious university.
Mr. Puey, an economist, never held high political office but greatly influenced those who did, from military strongmen in the 1950s to current democratic leaders. Many were once his students.
Rozelar Goode, 95, a former sharecropper and laundry worker who raised seven children, including former Philadelphia Mayor W. Wilson Goode (D), died Aug. 5 in Philadelphia after a heart attack.
Mrs. Goode was born in North Carolina, where she was a sharecropper with her husband, Albert, for more than three decades. The family moved to Philadelphia in 1954, as machines began to replace manual labor on the farms.
Harry `The Hat' Walker
Harry "The Hat" Walker, 80, who led the National League in hitting for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1947, died Aug. 8 at a hospital in Birmingham from complications of a stroke.
Mr. Walker, a left-handed hitter nicknamed for his habit of adjusting his cap between pitches, had a .296 average in a 22-year pro career, including 11 seasons in the majors. He spent eight years with the Cardinals and also played for the Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds, mostly as an outfielder. He appeared in three World Series (1942, 1943 and 1946) and two All-Star Games (1943 and 1947).
His best year was 1947, when he batted .363 while playing 130 games for Philadelphia and 10 games with St. Louis. He spent 20 years as a manager, including major league stints with the Cardinals (1955), Pittsburgh Pirates (1965 to 1967) and Houston Astros (1968 to 1972).
Grateful Dead Archivist
Dick Latvala, 56, the official archivist of the Grateful Dead, died Aug. 6 at home in Petaluma, Calif., 10 days after suffering a heart attack. He had the ultimate deadhead fantasy job: organizing and preserving the legendary group's thousands of hours of concert recordings.
The band put on 2,500 concerts during its 30-year run. Mr. Latvala culled through the vintage recordings made by band crew members to produce "Dick's Picks," a compact disc series available only through mail order that is considered an essential item in the collection of die-hard Dead fans.
He was an intrepid collector of Dead recordings even before he became the group's archivist and had tapes of about 900 concerts. Mr. Latvala, a self-described hippie who was born in Berkeley, Calif., considered the archival post his first, and only, real job and said it made him "one of the luckiest persons on the planet."
Spice Girls Manager
Bob Herbert, 57, who recruited and trained the Spice Girls singing group, was killed Aug. 9 after he lost control of his car in heavy rain and collided with another car in Windsor, west of London. Two people in the other car were injured.
Mr. Herbert and his son, Chris, sought candidates for the Spice Girls in an ad in a trade magazine in 1996. They chose and drilled the five young women, who went on to international pop stardom. The group later fired Herbert in favor of another manager, and their number was reduced to four when Geri Halliwell -- Ginger Spice -- quit the group last year.
Mr. Herbert went on to manage the teen pop group Five.
