Kathleen Tynan, 57, who won widespread acclaim for a biography of her late husband, drama critic Kenneth Tynan, died of cancer Tuesday in London. Her husband, who died in 1980, was London's most influential theater critic and played a major role in shaping British drama. Her 1987 biography, "The Life of Kenneth Tynan," was hailed as the high spot of her literary career. Her other works include the 1975 novel "The Summer Aeroplane" and the screenplay for the 1978 movie "Agatha," which starred Dustin Hoffman and Vanessa Redgrave.

John H. Reid, 63, owner and publisher of the Hershey Chronicle and the Elizabethtown Chronicle in Pennsylvania, died Monday of familial amyloidosis, a degenerative disease.
