Mr. McDonnell was chief executive when McDonnell Douglas completed the Skylab space station in 1973.
Sanford Noyes McDonnell was born on Oct. 12, 1922, in Little Rock, Ark. The family moved to St. Louis after his uncle chose it as a safer place to build military aircraft than the coasts. The McDonnell Aircraft Corporation became the city’s largest employer.
Mr. McDonnell had planned to follow his father into finance, majoring in economics at Princeton, but was diverted by World War II.
In the Army, he trained as an engineer and worked in New Mexico as a technician on the Manhattan Project, which built the first atomic bomb. In a history he wrote for the Atomic Heritage Foundation, Mr. McDonnell said that as a “lowly G.I.” he had not contributed anything of note to the project, and that security was so tight that most of the soldiers did not know what they were working on. “At the end of the work day, I remember washing my hands until I no longer got a reading on the Geiger counter,” he wrote.
After his discharge, Mr. McDonnell married Priscilla Robb of Albuquerque, whom he had met on the ski slopes of New Mexico. He received an engineering degree from the University of Colorado and went back to St. Louis to work for his uncle, who offered to sta... (New York Times)

Harris, 56, a former Hamilton High star and one of the most honored defenders in UofM football history from 1973-76, died at home in Little Rock on Sunday after a heart attack.
"Eric was an incredible athlete, one of the most gifted natural athletes I'd ever seen," said former center Bob Rush, captain of the 1976 Tigers and Harris' teammate. "He was really tall for a cornerback, he was almost 6-4. Truth is Eric could have been an all-American at wide receiver or cornerback. He was a great cover corner and with his size he could clean a ball carrier's clock when it came time for run support."
From his first days on campus, Harris was an impact player. As a four-time All-South Independent team selection, he had 218 career tackles with 27 pass breakups and 13 interceptions (which still ranks third in school history).
In his senior season, he was selected to four all-America teams. He also played in the Blue-Gray Game, the Senior Bowl, and was regarded as one of the top two defensive backs in the 19... (The Commercial Appeal)

He grew up to become a prominent physician and educator, the head of the ear, nose and throat department at St. Louis University School of Medicine and the first African-American to lead a department of otolaryngology in the U.S.
He marched with the Rev...

To understand how different the world -- and newspapers -- were when John Knott was a cub reporter, consider how it was he landed at The Commercial Appeal in 1945.
Mr. Knott, a native of Little Rock, had worked for The Associated Press and Arkansas Gazette before deciding he wanted a change of scenery, according to his wife, Kathy Knott. Plan A was finding a newspaper job in New Orleans... (The Commercial Appeal)
