David Kay Obituary: David A. Kay, the weapons proliferation expert who led a CIA-run operation in 2003 that concluded former Iraqi ruler Saddam Hussein had not built any weapons of mass destruction, passed away on August 13 at his home in Ocean View, Delaware. His findings severely undermined the primary justification for the U.S.-led invasion earlier that year. He was 82. His wife, Anita Kay, stated that cancer was the underlying cause of his passing. Dr. Kay, a shy native Texan who holds a doctorate in international affairs, began his professional life as a teacher of political science before going on to work for organizations such as UNESCO in Paris and the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna. He is now retired. After the United States and its allies had freed Kuwait from Saddam Hussein’s forces in 1991, he was sent to Iraq to serve as the chief nuclear weapons inspector for the United Nations and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). This is when he became a household name. The search for and destruction of any prohibited nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons or materials was the objective of each and every one of the United Nations’ teams. In September of 1991, Dr. Kay’s nuclear team conducted an unannounced inspection of a military facility in Baghdad using the authority granted to them by a United Nations resolution. The purpose of the inspection was to search for incriminating documents regarding Hussein’s covert efforts to develop nuclear weapons.   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 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. He next landed the title role in Morgan: A Suitable Case for Treatment as a daydreamer descending into apparent insanity. “You can’t count on me being civilised,” he tells his wife (Vanessa Redgrave). “I’ve lost the thread.” Later he dons an ape suit, imagines commuters as wild animals and ends the film in a mental institution where he is last seen tending a flower-bed in the shape of a hammer and sickle. The picture was every bit as trenchant a commentary on class, conformity and rebellion as better-known examples such as If… and Billy Liar. It also remains the screen work that best captures Warner’s particular mix of the kooky and the volatile. After playing Konstantin in Sidney Lumet’s film of The Seagull (1968), he starred in The Ballad of Cable Hogue (1970), the first of three movies for Sam Peckinpah. That year, Warner broke both his feet after falling from a balcony in Rome. The mysterious circumstances of the accident gave rise to rumours of drug use. Not until he was much older did medical tests reveal a chemical imbalance which left him prone to vertigo and panic attacks. Peckinpah brought him out of hospital to play a man with educational difficulties in the violent thriller Straw Dogs (1971). “He knew I wanted to get back in front of a camera,” said Warner, who limped noticeably on screen.    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. e 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. 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
