Maurice Chase would drive to the most desperate neighborhood in Los Angeles, where he would hand out crisp, new one-dollar bills, along with a handshake and a blessing. Clad in a Notre Dame hat and a red sweater over his clerical collar, Father Dollar Bill, as he was known, cut a hugely popular figure with the homeless of Skid Row. Hundreds would gather each week to await his arrival, forming a line that sometimes stretched four blocks. Father Chase died of cancer Nov. 20 at his home in Los Angeles, said his nephew, Robert Boyd. He was 92. "He was just a glorious man," said Beverly Taylor, 59, who lived on Skid Row for two decades. "He was just always there." Beginning in the 1980s, Father Chase, a Roman Catholic, gave out untold numbers of bills, around $3,000 each week. Almost all of them were ones, although to some he would offer larger notes, five-dollar bills or occasionally even hundreds, especially on holidays like Norine Johnson; child psychologist studied Child psychologist Norine G. Johnson spent her career asking how women overcome crushing poverty to create better lives for their families. A photo in her office of her grandmother, Verna Gentry Collins Derby, helped guide her. A teenage bride, her grandmother was widowed with four children in 1915 in Kentucky. Coping with debilitating depression after her husband, a local sheriff, was murdered in an ambush, she set his plate at the table for months afterward. Slowly, she pulled herself together, moved her family to Louisville, and went to nursing school. "How did she do that?" Dr. Johnson wrote in an autobiography published in a 2001 collection of leading women in psychology. "Where do women with few material resources find the strength to persevere and succeed while maintaining families and friends? How can we as a society, as a profession, develop the knowledge base and skills to help young girls and women develop those strengths?" A past president of the American Psychological Association and the Massachusetts Psychological Association, she turned her grandmother's story into the historical novel, "An American Family Myth," published last year. Dr. Johnson died Nov. 19 in her Roslindale home of breast cancer. She was 75. "She wanted to understand what made some people more resilient," said Dorothy Cantor of Westfield, N.J., a friend and psychologist. "She was on a quest to find out what would give people strength." Barry Llewellyn, cofounder of Jamaica's Heptones; 63 By Rob Kenner NEW YORK TIMES NEW YORK - Barry Llewellyn, a founding member of the popular Jamaican harmony trio the Heptones, died of pneumonia Nov. 23 in St. Andrew, Jamaica. He was 63 and lived in Brooklyn. Founded by Mr. Llewellyn and his schoolmate Earl Morgan, the Heptones rose from singing on the streets of Trenchtown to take their place alongside the Wallers and the Maytals as one of the island's most important vocal groups. As Jamaican popular music shifted from the hard-driving ska beat to a dreamier sound known as rock steady, the Heptones were among the most consistent hit makers in reggae, with romantic records like "Sweet Talking" and "Party Time." Barrington Llewellyn was born in Kingston, Jamaica. He began singing around the age of 14, and formed the Heptones with Morgan shortly afterward. Inspired by American R&B groups like the Drifters and the Impressions, the Heptones pro- from lighthearted love Obituaries Chase, 92; Skid MONICA ALMEIDANEW YORK TIMESFILE 2002 Father Chase greeted people in lines that stretched for blocks. Thanksgiving and Christmas. Then the total he handed out could rise to $15,000. Over a year, Father Chase would raise and distribute more than $100,000, Boyd said, much of it donated by people in the entertainment world like Bob and Dolores Hope and Bob Newhart, whom he met decades earlier when he worked at ministries and Catholic schools around Southern California. Some aid workers criticized Father Chase's brand of charity, complaining that his gifts had little long-term impact on the lives A psychologist for almost four decades, Dr. Johnson turned the answers she and her colleagues found into several books, including "Shaping the Future of Feminist Psychology," a 1997 book she coedited with Judith Worell. With Worell and Michael C. Roberts, she also edited a 1999 book for adolescent girls and their mothers, "Beyond Appearance: a New Look at Adolescent Girls." In 2001, Dr. Johnson became the ninth woman to lead the American Psychological Association. She made several national appearances discussing effects of post-traumatic stress disorder after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11,2001. Raised in the suburbs of Indianapolis, Dr. Johnson was born during the Great Depression. At Broad Ripple High School in Indianapolis, from which Dr. Johnson graduated in 1952, she had "quiet elegance" and was a patient listener who liked to laugh, according to her prom date, Maynard Poland, who remained her friend over the years. "She was one of those wonderful people who has left the world a better place by her time here," he said. She graduated with a bachelor's degree from DePauw University, where she fought gender discrimination as a leader of the student senate. Marrying soon after college, she put her career on hold to have children. Taking classes part time, she studied while her children slept. It took eight years to finish graduate work and a doctorate, which she received in 1972 from Wayne State University in Detroit. songs to weightier themes on records like "Equal Rights" and "Sufferers Time." During a prolific five-year run with Clement S. Dodd's Studio One label, they created a deep catalog of hits that has been rerecorded by successive generations of musicians. They went on to work with the visionary producer Lee Scratch Perry at the height of his powers and released the classic album "Night Food" on Chris Blackwell's Island Records label in 1976. Usually responsible for singing harmonies, Mr. Llewellyn took the lead on "Nine Pounds of Steel," "Take Me Darling," as well as the Heptones' biggest international hit, "Book of Rules," which he adapted from "Bag of Tools," a poem by R.L. Sharpe. The song was included in two movie soundtracks. Mr. Llewellyn was in Jamaica working to establish a learning center to help young people in his native Kingston at the time of his death. In addition to his wife, he leaves several children and grandchildren, four brothers, and four sisters. Row's 'Father of recipients. "I think his desire to bring people love was true, and can certainly be modeled by the rest of us," said the Rev. Andy Bales, chief executive of Union Rescue Mission. "But the last thing people on the street need is cash. A lot of people took that money and spent it in an unhealthy way." Father Chase acknowledged that in a neighborhood where drug abuse and untreated mental illness were common, a single dollar would not get someone off the street. But the money, he said, was not the point. Dr. Johnson worked in Cleveland before moving to Boston with her first husband. That marriage ended in divorce. She became director of psychology at Kennedy Memorial Hospital for Children in Brighton, now Franciscan Hospital for Children. During 18 years there, Dr. Johnson created a department and increased the staff from herself and one psychologist to 35 positions. Dr. Johnson left Kennedy in 1988 and went into private practice. She married Boston Herald political columnist Wayne Woodlief in 1990 after a long courtship. He described her as a consummate nurturer and an ardent feminist who put up a bumper sticker in their house: "Well-behaved women seldom make history." Woodlief helped edit her writing, and she shared her insights on political figures. "It was a two-way street," he said. "She was a wonderful, wonderful woman and I miss the hell out of her. I just loved her very much." Dr. Johnson was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1982. She was declared cancer-free by 1990, but her cancer returned in April 2010. Dr. Johnson showed her daughters how to balance family and careers, advising them to put family first, said her daughter Kathryn. "My mother was amazing," said Kathryn of Westford, a marketing executive. "She managed it all. I'm not sure how." Dr. Johnson's daughter Cammarie, of Westborough, is a director of the New England Center for Children, a school for A. Tocilescu, 65, Romanian director BUCHAREST, Romania Alexandra Tocilescu, a respected Romanian theater director equally at home with William Shakespeare and his country's national playwright, died yesterday. He was 65. Mr. Tocilescu died of a heart attack at Bucharest's Floreasca Hospital, doctors said. He had been dogged by ill health for decades, including kidney problems that required dialysis. "He was someone who believed in theater as a daily vocation, as a privileged form of dialogue with life and the challenges of history," President Traian Basescu said in a condolence message to the director's family. Art journalist Victoria Anghelescu said, "He was a flame that burned for the theater." In a career spanning almost 40 years, Mr. Tocilescu directed dozens of productions at the famed Bulandra theater in Bucharest, the Romanian Opera, and other theaters. His last production was Samuel Beckett's "Endgame" in 2009. Dollar Bill' "I'm trying to give them hope, to give them a sense of dignity," he told The New York Times in 2002. Maurice Gordon Chase was born in Dinuba, Calif. He studied at St. Paul's College in Washington and was ordained in 1953 by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, an early Catholic television evangelist. Father Chase spent the early years of his career at ministries around Southern California before serving as a fund-raising assistant to the president of Loyola Marymount University, the Rev. Donald R Merrifield. It was Merrifield who suggested to Father Chase that he also work with the poor for his own spiritual health. Father Chase continued to make his weekly trip to Skid Row until the last months of his life. "I love it," he said. "God has given me the happiest part of my life at the end." On Wednesday, at a Thanksgiving dinner on Skid Row put on by the Los Angeles Mission, word that Father Dollar Bill had died began to spread. Wendell Harrison, 54, called out to diners, "Dollar Man is dead." strong women EVAN RICHMAN NORINE G. JOHNSON autism in Southborough. Her youngest, Margaret of Bethesda, Md., is a lawyer and associate professor at the University of Baltimore School of Law. In addition to her husband and three daughters, Dr. Johnson leaves a stepson, Mark Woodlief of Portland, Ore.; a stepdaughter, Rawn Ugwoke, a missionary in Gambia; and 10 grandchildren. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday in Story Chapel at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge. Burial will be in the cemetery. A week before she died, Dr. Johnson asked for visits from her close friends in psychology, seven women who met many years ago when they walked out of a dull conference and began chatting in a Florida courtyard. They collaborated and traveled together over the years. More recently, the group demanded to hear the latest chapters of Dr. Johnson's novel as fast as she wrote them, Cantor said. At the end of her visit with Dr. Johnson, who lay on her bed surrounded by her three daughters, Dr. Johnson quipped: "Just remember, girls, I was a better APA president than she was." "She was an amazing woman with tremendous grace and a clear consistency about who she was," Cantor said. Little Mole, "krtek" in Czech, is popular with children. Zdenek Miler, 90, Czech cartoonist created Little Mole PRAGUE - In the 1950s, Zdenek Miler stumbled over a molehill in woods west of Prague, giving him the idea for an animated cartoon character that has enchanted millions of children. Mr. Miler, creator of the Little Mole character, died yesterday. He was 90 and spent the last months of his life at a nursing home southwest of Prague. He created the character, always cheerful and ready to help, in 1956. The first episode, "How the Mole got his Trousers," was an immediate hit. Since then, 50 episodes have been made.
