Georges R. Garinther, a retired Army civilian engineer who studied ordnance noise and once examined the acoustics of the John F. Kennedy assassination, died March 9 of complications from heart disease and Alzheimer's disease at his daughter's Havre de Grace home. He was 79. An Army publication described Mr. Garinther as "an international authority on the effects of impulse noise on the hearing of soldiers and on the measurement and analysis of impulse and steady-state noise" when he retired in 1996 from the Aberdeen Proving Ground's Human Engineering Lab. "His job was to save the hearing of soldiers and allow them to communicate better," said a son, Geoff Garinther, a Lutherville resident.

In her four years at Morgan State University, Maria Richardson aced nearly every assignment given her -- no small feat in a field as technical and demanding as electrical engineering, her major. She earned a 3.87 GPA -- highest in her electrical engineering class of 66 -- and along the way won raves from her professors and mentors for her work in the rarified world of electrical impedance technology, perfecting a device for "seeing" beneath a person's skin. She has the world at her feet; in a field with a shortage of both women and African-Americans, she has been showered with money to pursue graduate studies.
