HI I IMiUKGH I'UM-CjA.hl 1 1 H I K I DAY. J L LY 1 4.2000 OBITUARIES KM. ESfAHPIARY Futurist's body is frozen to await cancer cure . ' By Myrna Oliver Los Angeles Times EM. Esfandiary, who legally changed his name to FM2030 because of his confidence that he would live to 100 and beyond, has died at 69. The "chronic optimist," who believed age was irrelevant because a person might have artificial body parts of many different ages he had a hip that was only 2 years old died Saturday in NeW York City. Mr. Esfandiary, who said immortality could be achieved by replacing worn-out organs with synthetic substitutes, died of cancer of the pancreas one body part for which no substitute has been created and which he recently denounced as "a stupid, dumb, wretched organ." In the event an artificial pancreas is ever invented, however, Mr.' Esfandiary will be waiting. Flora Schnall, a longtime friend whp announced the futurist's death, said his body has been crybgenically preserved by the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Alcor Life Extension Foundation. !'He believed," she said, "scientific advances would lead to the revival of his body in the future." The philosopher, visionary educator, lecturer and writer had been convinced that a life expectancy of 100 would be commonplace by 1998 and that, by his centenary birthday in 2030, mankind would know how to prolong life into infinity. Far from a crackpot, Mr. Esfandiary was respected by scientists, engineers, students who took his classes and intellectuals who read his books or attended his lectures. A quarter-century ago he was predicting things that are now happening. What he called "teleshopping" and "tele-education" are now ordinary Internet activities. And he foresaw such medical and biological breakthroughs as fertilization and gestation outside the womb and the correcting of genetic flaws. Mr. Esfandiary taught futurist philosophy at University of California, Los Angeles, Extension for many years and wrote opinion pieces for the Los Angeles Times. On the East Coast, he taught classes at New York's New School for Social Research, the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, and Florida International University, and wrote opinion pieces for The New York Times. After writing a series of critically praised satirical novels in the 1960s "Day of Sacrifice," "The Beggar" and "Identity Card" Mr. Esfandiary turned in the 1970s to serious futurist nonaction. Among his upbeat books were "Optimism One," "Up-Wingers," "Are You a Transhu-man?" and "Telespheres." "We are at the beginning of an age of limitless abundance," he asserted repeatedly. "There is no scarcity; there is only the psychology of scarcity." Born in Belgium, the son of an Iranian diplomat, and educated in the Middle East, Europe and the United States, Mr. Esfandiary described his own citizenship as "Universal," explaining, "I translive all over the planet." SALLY FITZGERALD A confidante of Flannery O'Connor By Elaine Woo The Los Angeles Times In the fall of 1949, Sally Fitzgerald's life became entwined with that of a quiet, sandy-haired young woman with penetrating blue eyes who joined her rural Connecticut household as a boarder. The young woman, Flannery O'Connor, would become one of America's most cherished writers. Ms. Fitzgerald, a homemaker and occasional book reviewer , became one of O'Connor's closest friends and steward of her small but exceptional collection of short stories and other writings. Ms. Fitzgerald, who was 83 and died of cancer June 25 in Cambridge, Mass., was the editor of "The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O'Connor," which she described as a "self-portrait in words" of the Southern writer often compared to Nathaniel Hawthorne and Fyodor Dostoevsky. The letters, published in 1979, earned an unprecedented special award in 1980 from the National Book Critics Circle. She also was co-editor with her then-husband, Robert, of "Flannery O'Connor: Mystery and Manners," a 1969 selection of essays and lectures that illuminated many of O'Connor's ideas about writing. She was editor of the Library of America's "Flannery O'Connor Collected Works," published in 1988, and was completing a biography of the author when she died. "There is no question she was probably the pre-eminent O'Connor scholar," said Sarah Gordon, an English professor at Georgia College and State University and editor of the O'Connor Bulletin, a scholarly journal. "She made O'Connor much more available to us as a human being, particularly in the letters . . . and she gave readers great insight into O'Connor's stated intentions and motives." Ms. Fitzgerald grew up in Texas. After World War II, Ms. Fitzgerald and her husband, Robert, were living in Connecticut and were active in New York literary circles. Through New York contacts, they met O'Connor, who was seeking a quiet place to finish her first novel. They soon agreed to rent her a room over their garage in Ridge-field, Conn. Sally Fitzgerald was, like O'Connor, deeply Catholic. Such faith permeated O'Connor's work, which explored God, divine grace and redemption through stories and characters so grotesque that the author was classified as Southern Gothic. Although elegant, witty and ferociously intellectual, Ms. Fitzgerald lacked her husband's literary education. Yet the religious beliefs she shared with O'Connor gave her ground to stand on when she of fered the young writer occasional suggestions, sometimes while the two washed dishes on a quiet Saturday night. Their roots in the South O'Connor was from Georgia provided another link between the women, who would become the closest of friends. O'Connor had graduated from the University of Iowa Writers Workshop and was finishing a fellowship at Yaddo, an artists' community in New York, when she came to the Fitzgeralds. She lived with them for more than a year while working on her novel. Recalling her reaction upon reading the story that became the beginning of "Wise Blood," published in 1952, Ms. Fitzgerald said, "I knew I was in the presence of a formidable talent." In December 1950, when O'Connor was 25, she fell ill and returned to Georgia. She was hospitalized with the lupus that finally killed her at the age of 39. . . . , BILL MUNSON Quarterbacked six NFL teams over 16 seasons By Curt Sylvester Knight Ridder Newspapers Bill Munson was more than a quarterback during his eight years with the Lions. Greg Landry remembers him as a competitor who helped him learn the NFL game and played a key role in mending the rift between Lions offensive and defensive players. Charlie Sanders remembers him as a smart quarterback with a fine touch on his passes, and one of the team's most clever practical jokers. And both expressed sadness in learning that Mr. Munson had been found dead Monday in his swimming pool in Lodi, Calif., an apparent drowning victim. He was 58. Mr. Munson is the third ex-Lions quarterback to die in two weeks. Tobin Rote, 72, died June 27 in Saginaw, Mich.; Karl Sweetan, 57, died five days later in Las Vegas. Both had complications after surgery. Mr. Munson was found in the swimming pool at his home by a nephew Monday evening after family members became concerned that they hadn't heard from him since early Sunday, Lodi police officer Gary Fauth said. Mr. Munson was a first-round draft pick of the Los Angeles Rams in 1964 and was acquired by the Lions in 1968, the same year the Lions drafted Landry in the first round. The Lions soon had a quarterback controversy brewing. Mr. Munson was acknowledged as the better passer, but Landry won the job with his superior mobility, although injuries resulted in significant playing time for both. "For two guys that were trying to compete for the job, I thought we had a pretty good relationship, and I think that helped the ballclub Landrysaid. Mr. Munson, who played eight years in Detroit, was traded to Seat- tie before the 1976 season and finished his 16-year NFL career with the Seahawks, San Diego and Buffalo. He remains seventh in all-time passing yards with the Lions (8,461), fifth in career touchdown passes (56) and fourth in passer rating (75.2). - LATEST DEATHS To our readers: The Post-Gazette's comprehensive listings of recent deaths Include two types of obituaries.
