The Daily Goodbye

By Washington Post editors

It's today's Daily Goodbye, Post obituary writer Patricia Sullivan's roundup of significant and interesting passings here and around the world:

Among today's deaths, Wat Tyler Cluverius IV, who made his own name as a diplomat -- a "superdiplomat," Time magazine once said -- by working out peace pacts at Camp David and in Oslo. He died in Cleveland this week. And there's the death of Charles R. Burke, a lawyer who tried cases in Pittsburgh that changed the law forbidding hotels from serving alcohol on Sundays, and another to allow bowling on Sundays.

And indigenous singer Ruby Hunter, one of Australia's most revered performers, has also died. In her deep, gravelly voice, she told stories in song about indigenous matters and women's issues. She wore flamboyant costumes and headdresses, often with feathers, which she made herself. Click here to read more about these folks and others.
