Welcome to another edition of Dead End.

We take a moment to remember Stevie Wonder's mother, Lula 
Mae Hardaway, who has recently died. She helped her son

Delivered I'm Yours" and "I Was Made to Love Her." We also 
remember NASA rocket scientist Wilber B. Huston, Austrian 
journalist Hubertus Czernin, and avant garde composer Gyorgy

Stevie Wonder's mother, Lula Mae Hardaway, who helped write 
some of her son's biggest hits, has died at age 76, it was
reported Saturday. The family revealed Hardaway died May 31, 
but did not say where or release the cause of death, The Los 
Angeles Times reported. Hardaway helped her son write 
"Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" and "I Was Made to 
Love Her," among others, the newspaper said. The Alabama 
native described her tumultuous childhood and the abuse she 
later suffered at the hands of her husband in Michigan in 
her 2003 book, "Blind Faith, The Miraculous Journey of Lula 
Hardaway, Stevie Wonder's Mother."  She thought Wonder's 
blindness was punishment from God for her past sins, the 
newspaper said, and tried for years to find a cure through 
faith healers and traditional medicine. Hardaway is survived 
by her five children, five siblings and 20 grandchildren and

NASA rocket scientist Wilber B. Huston, selected by Thomas 
Edison as the nation's "brightest boy" in 1929, has died in 
Fountain Hills, Ariz. He was 93. Huston was chosen as the 
representative of the State of Washington and was tested in 
mathematics, physics, chemistry and cultural and moral 
issues, said The News York Times. After winning the 
competition, he attended the Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology, with Edison offering to pay all expenses. 
Huston was known from then on as "Edison's smartest boy" 
or "America's Brightest Boy," the Times said. His every 
move was chronicled. Huston expressed some irritation, say-
ing that he disliked being referred to by variants of the 
"smartest boy."  He later joined the NASA Goddard Space
Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., where he was mission 
director for the launching of seven weather satellites. 
He retired from the government to do private consulting 
work in 1974.



Austrian journalist Hubertus Czernin, who was instrumental 
in returning art seized by the Nazis to its rightful owner, 
has died in Vienna at 50. Czernin died Saturday of complica-
tions associated with mastocytosis, a rare cell disorder he 
suffered from and which had left him in poor health for last 
few years, The Los Angeles Times reported. Czernin -- the 
first journalist to have access to records at the Austrian 
Gallery in Vienna -- reported in a series of articles about 
the questionable ownership papers of famous paintings from 
artist Gustav Klimt. The 1998 articles helped pave the way 
for the passage of Austria's Art Restitution Law, which 
allowed the family of Maria Altmann to pursue claims to art-
work that had been seized during World War II. A U.S. Supreme 
Court ruling allowed Altmann to sue the Austrian government 
for ownership of the multimillion dollar Klimt paintings.

Hungarian musical pioneer and avant garde composer Gyorgy 
Ligeti has died in Vienna at the age of 83. Ligeti died 
Monday, the Guardian reported Tuesday. He was best known for 
his creation of "micropolyphony," the mixing of musical 
facets such as texture to the point that borders ceased to 
exist between melody and rhythm, the Guardian said. "Ligeti 
was an avant garde, definitely modern composer who did the 
most for renewing the musical language in the second half of 
the 20th century," Budapest Festival Orchestra conductor 
Ivan Fischer said. Ligeti contributed to the soundtrack of 
the film "2001: A Space Odyssey" and also contributed to 
Romanian folk music. One of his former assistants, Stephen 
Furguson, said his "cluster sound" H fascinated Kubrick "and 
propelled Ligeti to the top of the great composers of the 
second half of the 20th Century."  Ligeti is survived by his 
wife and a son.
