Welcome to another edition of Dead End.

Actor Glenn Ford, who brought a quiet reserve to the screen 
in movies dating back to Hollywood's golden era, has died 
this week after suffering several strokes. Marie Tharp, a 
pioneering undersea mapmaker who was one of the first to 
recognize sea-floor spreading, died of cancer. Also this 
week we remember the passing of the founder and lead singer 
of the doo-wop group the Condors, and experimental composer 
James Tenney.

GLENN FORD, ACTOR, DEAD AT 90

Glenn Ford, who brought a quiet reserve to the screen in 
movies dating back to Hollywood's golden era, has died at 90 
at his home in Beverly Hills, Calif. Ford was best known for 
his roles in such films as "Blackboard Jungle," "Gilda" and 
"Pocketful of Miracles." His credits also included "Teahouse 
of the August Moon," "Don't Go Near the Water" and "The 
Courtship of Eddie's Father." Ford was born Gwyllyn Samuel 
Newton Ford May 1, 1916, in Quebec. His family moved to Santa 
Monica, Calif., when he was 7. He began working with local 
theater groups after high school, and broke into Hollywood in 
the 1939 feature "Heaven with a Barbed-Wire Fence," the Times 
said. He joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1943, where he met 
actress-dancer Eleanor Powell. They married, and had a son, 
Peter, but divorced after 16 years of marriage. Ford married 
actress Kathryn Hays in 1966, but the marriage ended quickly, 
and Ford's 1977 marriage to Cynthia Hayward ended in 1984. 
Ford also married his nurse, Jeanne Baus, in 1993.

MARIE THARP, UNDERSEA PIONEER, DEAD AT 86

Marie Tharp, a pioneering undersea mapmaker who was one of 
the first to recognize sea-floor spreading, has died in 
Nyack, N.Y. The cause was cancer, The New York Times reported. 
Tharp, 86, spent her career at the Lamont Doherty Earth 
Observatory of Columbia University in Palisades, N.Y. She 
came there in 1948 as a research assistant to the founder, 
Maurice Ewing, and retired in 1982. Because women were not 
allowed to sail on research ships in  the 1940s and 1950s, 
Tharp remained at the institute plotting data. Tharp spent 
much of her life in a professional and personal partnership 
with Bruce Heezen, who came to Lamont as one of Ewing's 
students. Tharp and Heezen collaborated on the first complete 
map of the ocean floor. In 1953, Tharp observed a crack in 
the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. She wondered if the crack might be 
continuous and evidence of sea-floor spreading. Heezen died 
of a heart attack in 1977. Tharp leaves no survivors.

Sanders Barber Jr., founder and lead singer of the doo-wop

founded the singing group with six others following high 
school graduation. The Condors performed throughout 
Pennsylvania, including venues like the White Elephant in 
White Oak, Dave's Walnut Inn in McKeesport and the Elks 
Club in Donora, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. Barber 
was born in Albany, Ga., but moved to McKeesport, Pa., as a 
child. In addition to singing, he worked for the Pittsburgh 
Water and Sewer Authority until his retirement about three 
years ago. He died Aug. 23 from complications from leukemia. 
His sister, Susie Brown, said Barber had been sick for 
about a year. Barber is survived by his wife Lois Evon Baker 
Barber; sons Kevin Davis and Sanders Devon Barber; daughters
Jackie Wright and Nicole Barber; stepchildren Karilyn Reese 
and Marilyn Hopkins; and 12 brothers and sisters.

cancer in Valencia, Calif., at age 72. Tenney attended the

College in Vermont in 1958. At the University of Illinois,
