●An article about the Washington Passport Agency in this weekend’s Travel section, which was printed in advance, incorrectly says that only first-time applicants must present photos at an appointment for a passport. In fact, photos are required from all applicants, except those who are only adding pages to their book.

●An obituary of conductor Claudio Abbado in the Jan. 21 Style section incorrectly said that Zubin Mehta finished second for the Serge Koussevitzky conducting prize in 1958. Abbado received the Koussevitzky Prize, then valued at $500. Mehta received the Gertrude Robinson-Smith Award, a separate conducting prize valued at $200.
