Deaths Elsewhere

October 28, 2004

A. David Mazzone, 76, the federal judge who guided the massive cleanup of Boston Harbor, died of cancer complications Monday in Wakefield, Mass.

In 1985, Judge Mazzone ruled wastewater discharges into Boston Harbor by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority violated the federal Clean Water Act. The decision set in motion the continuing cleanup.

George Silk, 87, a photojournalist who spent 30 years with Life magazine, earning fame for coverage of World War II, died Saturday in New York.

Mr. Silk, who shot the first pictures of the atom-bombed city of Nagasaki, was on assignment in Nepal in December 1972 when he received news that the magazine had folded. According to the 1977 book That Was the Life, Mr. Silk replied: "Your message ... badly garbled. Please send one-half million dollars additional expenses."
