OLEG CASSINI, FASHION INNOVATOR, DEAD AT 92

Fashion innovator Oleg Cassini, who brought the U.S. the 
Nehru jacket and pillbox hat, has died on Long Island, N.Y., 
at the age 92. No cause of death was given for the man 
credited with defining Jacqueline Kennedy's style, The Los 
Angeles Times reported Saturday. Cassini was not only an 
innovative leader in the fashion industry, he was a major 
Hollywood player as well, married to actress Gene Tierney, 
engaged to Grace Kelly before she became princess of Monaco 
and a regular on TV talk shows as "The Tonight Show and "The 
Mike Douglas Show." He was the first fashion designer to 
franchise and had as many as 50 licenses for items such as 
sunglasses, watches and children's clothes, The Times said. 
At one point, Cassini's estimated worldwide retail volume 
was estimated at $400 million. In later years, Cassini
became an animal activist and introduced micro-fiber fake 
furs in 1999. He is survived by his daughters and grand-
children.

BILL BEUTEL, ABC NEWS VETERAN, DEAD AT 75

ABC News veteran Bill Beutel, known for his signature "Good 
luck and be well. Goodnight," has died in Pinehurst, N.C., 
at age 75. Beutel, who changed his name from Bill Boydel at 
the behest of a news director, died Saturday of undisclosed 
causes, WABC-TV, New York, reported Sunday. Beutel started 
with ABC in 1962 as a reporter for the network and anchor of 
WABC-TV's evening report then called "The Big News." ABC 
took him out of New York in 1968 and made him its London 
Bureau chief, where he worked with a young Peter Jennings.
WABC brought him back to New York two years later to co-
anchor its revamped "Eyewitness News" with Roger Grimsby, a 
partnership that lasted 16 years. Beutel retired from "Eye-
witness News" in January 2001 but remained as a reporter 
until 2003. Beutel was a pioneer in the morning news arena 
as well, hosting ABC's "AM America," now known as "Good 
Morning America," WABC said. Beutel is survived by his wife 
and four children.

DR. JAMES SCHWARTZ, NEUROBIOLOGIST, DEAD AT 73

Neurobiologist Dr. James H. Schwartz, whose research studied 
the biochemical basis of learning and memory, died from 
complications of leukemia at the age of 73, said the New 
York Times. In an observation with others, Schwartz discover-
ed that learning was associated with changes in the structure 
of chromatin, a basic material found within a cell, in some 
neurons. With doctors Eric R. Kandel and Thomas M. Jessell, 
Schwartz edited a textbook that has become "a standard of 
basic neuroscience." The book, "Principles of Neural Science," 
is for medical students and neuroscientists, and includes 
clinical descriptions of neurological and psychiatric dis-
orders. In addition to his neuro-research, Dr. Schwartz also 
collected and studied coins and gems from antiquity. He is 
survived by his wife, Dr. Catherine Lipkin, a daughter, Daisy 
Salzman; a son, Peter; a stepson, Jonathan Lipkin; and five 
grandchildren. His first wife, Frances, died in 1984.
