September 21, 1994

Francis Maziere, 70, one of France's foremost explorers and the author of a best-selling book on Easter Island, died Sunday in Paris. He traveled to Easter Island in the Pacific in 1963, hoping to shed light on the origin of the island's giant statues. His book about that trek, "Fantastic Easter Island," sold nearly 1 million copies.

Franco Moschino, 44, the ironic "enfant terrible" of Italian fashion who once designed a ball gown made of garbage bags, saying the gown's message was "fashion is trash," died Sunday of cancer in Annone di Brianza, Italy.
