He used novel legal approaches to bring charges against Augusto Pinochet and others in his repressive regime.

The Oscar-nominated 1976 film, starring Woody Allen, was based on his eight years on the blacklist.

The broadcaster reigned on cable news for a quarter-century, giving guests a haven to spill their secrets, hype their projects and soften their image.

He helped shape several memorable Broadway shows, including “A Chorus Line” and “Dreamgirls.”

Beginning his career at 10, he had long associations with Dinah Washington and Dizzy Gillespie.

After serving from 1967 to 1977 as president of what is now Bowie State University, he spent 18 years leading the National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education.

The outfielder defied threats to break Babe Ruth’s home run record and never forgot the jeers he received while playing in the South during the days of segregation.

His kidnapping in 1970 precipitated what Canadians call the October Crisis and made headlines around the world.

He developed confrontational tactics to harass abortion providers and won a long legal battle against the National Organization for Women.

A two-time Czech champion, three-time U.S. champion and assistant to Bobby Fischer, he penned a regular chess column for The Washington Post from 1995 until 2010.

He was known as the creative force behind such hits as “Be My Baby” and “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling” — and for disturbing behavior that culminated in a murder conviction.

On orders of his publisher and working with Alabama police, he wiretapped the civil rights leaders he covered.

He was “a Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly of street,” dancer and singer Toni Basil said.

She also wrote a memoir about her parents, anthropologists Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson.

Her organization was called COYOTE — short for Call Off Your Old Tired Ethics — but she and her associates also referred to themselves as a “loose union of women” or, winkingly, a “union of loose women.”

He became the nation’s longest-serving state Senate president, presiding for 33 years over his chamber in the General Assembly.

He later said his effusive 2015 letter extolling Donald Trump’s health was dictated by the future president.

Married for 50 years to Fred Rogers, she inspired Queen Sara, the royal lady of the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, and carried on his message of kindness after his death.

A longtime leader of the Western Shoshone Nation, she fought with the federal government for decades over ownership of her ancestral lands in central Nevada.
