Deaths Elsewhere

April 14, 2003

Cecil Howard Green, 102, the last living member of the four founders of electronics producer Texas Instruments, died Saturday in La Jolla, Calif., after contracting pneumonia.

In December 1941, Mr. Green joined Eugene McDermott, J. Erik Jonsson and H. Bates Peacock to buy Dallas-based Geophysical Service Inc. During World War II, GSI branched into the production of submarine detection devices for the U.S. military. In 1951, the company's name was changed to Texas Instruments.

Vera Zorina, 86, a dancer and actress whose career embraced classical ballet with such legendary troupes as the Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo and Broadway and Hollywood musicals, died Wednesday at her home in Santa Fe, N.M., after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage, her husband, harpsichordist Paul Wolfe, said.

The dancer made her Broadway debut in I Married An Angel, the 1938 Rodgers and Hart musical in which she starred as a celestial creature sent to Earth to dispense honesty and goodness.
