David Armstrong Obituary: According to the announcement made by Middlesbrough Football Club, former midfielder David Armstrong has passed away at the age of 67. Armstrong joined Boro in 1971 and made his debut for the club in April of the following year, when they were playing Blackpool. Over the course of his career, he earned three caps for England and played 431 times for Boro. He made 305 consecutive league appearances between March 1973 and August 1980, which is the club record for the most consecutive league appearances. He was an ever-present member of the team that won promotion in 1973–1974 under the management of Jack Charlton. Before moving to Southampton in 1981, he played for Boro for a total of 358 consecutive games and scored 77 goals during that time period.   Full Obituary

David Warner Obituary: He was born in Manchester to Ada Hattersley and Herbert Warner, who owned a nursing home. His parents separated during his childhood. “There was no theatrical tradition but plenty of histrionics,” he remarked of them. His upbringing became increasingly peripatetic. He attended eight different boarding schools and floundered academically. “My parents kept stealing me from each other, so I moved across England a lot.” He became interested in acting when he appeared in plays at school (“I was the tallest Lady Macbeth”) and eventually got a place at Rada, where one of his classmates was John Hurt, with whom he would later appear in the film version of David Halliwell’s play Little Malcolm and His Struggle Against the Eunuchs (1974). His first notable screen role was in Tony Richardson’s period romp Tom Jones (1963). He appeared as Snout in Richardson’s 1962 production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and was earmarked for the RSC by Hall, who saw him in Afore Night Come at the Arts Theatre. He was Henry VI in the RSC’s celebrated War of the Roses trilogy, which was adapted by John Barton from the three Henry plays and Richard III, and directed by Barton and Hall. A dynamic BBC film of the plays, ambitiously shot with 12 cameras, reached a wide audience during its two broadcasts in 1965 and 1966. Warner was then surprised by Hall’s invitation to play Hamlet. “I’m really a character actor, an old man actor,” he said, though he was only 24 at the time. His distracted handsomeness, golden locks and formidable jaw could have made him a viable romantic lead were it not for the languid oddness that set him apart, sharpening gradually into menace as he became a popular screen villain. He played Jack the Ripper in Time After Time (1979), Evil in Terry Gilliam’s Time Bandits (1981) and a computerised tyrant in Disney’s Tron (1982), for which he had only one stipulation for the studio: “There’s to be no doll of my character on the market. I don’t want my child having a plastic baddie as a daddy.” A younger generation got the chance to boo him as a dastardly valet in the smash-hit Titanic (1997).    Full Obituary

David McCullough Obituary: David was born in Pittsburgh, the son of Christian McCullough, president of the McCullough Electric Company, founded by David’s great-grandfather, and Ruth (nee Rankin), a leading figure in Pittsburgh society. David followed his father to Shady Side academy, Pittsburgh’s poshest prep school. He then went to Yale to study English. His teachers there included John O’Hara, John Hersey, Robert Penn Warren and, most influentially, the playwright Thornton Wilder, from whom he learned to maintain an “air of freedom” to avoid giving away a story to a reader; he applied this to his own writing, even though history’s outcomes are always thought to be known. He was also a member of the secret Skull and Bones Society, many of whose members have gone on to have a profound influence on history. At the Rolling Rock country club in Pittsburgh in 1951 he met Rosalee Barnes. After his graduation from Yale, they married. Intending to be a playwright, he took a job with the Luce magazines, including the newly launched Sports Illustrated, then worked for the US Information Agency and finally for American Heritage magazine, then published by Forbes. His first book came after he “stumbled” across the story of the 1889 Johnstown flood, a disaster that struck the steel town an hour east of his own hometown. The Johnstown Flood (1968) garnered excellent reviews, and McCullough decided to become a full-time writer. It took four years before his next book, The Great Bridge, was published; McCullough so immersed himself in Washington Roebling, the force behind the bridge’s construction, and one of the many killed in its construction, that he grew a beard exactly like Roebling’s. He followed that five years later with The Path Between the Seas (1977), the story of the Panama Canal, which won the National Book award as well as three other major history prizes, including the Francis Parkman. He served as an adviser to President Jimmy Carter on the treaty that handed control of the canal to Panama; Carter credited the book for making the treaty possible. Mornings on Horseback followed in 1981, winning his second National Book award.    Full Obituary
