Deaths elsewhere

July 11, 1992

Earl Van Winkle, 95, one of the nation's last former prisoners of war from World War I, died Sunday in Tucson, Ariz. He became a soldier in 1917 and found himself captured Sept. 28, 1918, at St. Mihiel, France. He and a few other prisoners held in Belgium escaped shortly before the Armistice.

Georgia Brown, 57, a gravelly voiced singer and an earthy actress who originated the role of Nancy in the musical "Oliver!," died July 5 in a London hospital after a brief, undisclosed illness. The British-born performer was born Lillian Klot, but took her stage name from "Sweet Georgia Brown" and "Georgia on my Mind," songs she sang frequently in the 1950s. She was nominated in 1963 for a Tony Award as best actress for her role in "Oliver!," but lost to Vivian Leigh for "Tovarich."
