William Meriwether took more than 20,000 black and white photographs of the Wild West. He crossed Colorado, New Mexico and Utah where he pointed his lens at adobe houses, cattle herds, trees and the grasslands.

His uniform included the prerequisite blue jeans and cowboy hat, and he liked add flare to his outfits with intricate Indian jewelry.

Joseph de Bicske Dobronyi has died. According to his Miami Herald obituary, he was "the globetrotting Coconut Grove bon vivant who claimed Hungarian nobility and movie-star girlfriends, -- and hosted epic bacchanals at his one-of-a-kind bachelor pad."

Jerry Stark
was in his mid-20s working on a General Motors assembly line when he was invited for a weekend of croquet---and beer. He went, mainly for the promised pale ales, but ended up falling in love with the staid country club game.

When he died last month, he was among the top five competing American players.
