TALLY [Providence RI Journal, Tuesday 3 Oct 2006] Tally, Dr. Francis P. 'Frank', an infectious disease specialist who helped develop life-saving antibiotics died Sunday Oct 1st at New England Medical Center in Boston. Dr. Tally, 66, was senior vice president and chief scientific officer of Cubist Pharmaceuticals, Lexington, Massachusetts. According to Dr. Tally's son, Kevin, his father died of acute, overwhelming bacterial infection. Dr. Tally's distinguished career in patient care, clinical and basic science research, teaching and mentoring was focused entirely on treating infectious diseases. As a young doctor serving as battalion surgeon with the 173rd Army Airborne Brigade, his duties included treating American troops and local Vietnamese victims of infectious disease, including the plague. Returning to the U.S. with a Bronze Star with Oak Leaf Cluster and Combat Medical Badge after a year on the front lines, he dedicated himself to improving the ability of medical professionals to treat infectious diseases. Dr. Tally, born and raised in Providence, a son of the late Joseph V. and Anna (Lyons) Tally, received his Bachelors degree from Providence College, and his M.D. degree from George Washington University School of Medicine. After military service, he completed an infectious diseases fellowship at the Wadsworth VA Hospital in Los Angeles, CA, followed by practice, research and teaching within the VA system and at UCLA School of Medicine. In 1975, Dr. Tally came to New England Medical Center in Boston to continue his academic and clinical work as a professor and senior physician, authoring numerous scientific articles and presenting his research internationally. In 1987, he left academia for the Lederle Labs, in Pearl River NY, where he was instrumental in developing antibiotics, including the widely used Zosyn. Dr. Tally was a co-inventor of nine drug development patents and played a lead role on teams that introduced important new antiinfectives. Dr. Tally's career-long concern with the growth of drug resistant strains led him to Cubist Pharmaceuticals in 1995, where he spearheaded the development of Cubicin, a novel antibiotic. When he spoke at his induction into AOA's Honor Society at GWU last year, Dr. Tally said, 'I had expected to have a career in private practice. But for me, Viet Nam was a life-changing event. So instead I started out in academia, focusing on infectious disease. I'm very proud of the role I have since played in developing life-saving antibiotics.' Dr. Tally is survived by his wife of 42 years, Barbara (Daniels) Tally, of Lincoln, MA and Narragansett RI., by three children, Kevin, Michaela and Patrick, and three grandchildren; his brothers Joseph and John and sister Mary Curran.

WALSH [Providence RI Journal, Tuesday 26 Oct 2004] Pawtucket - Jacqueline M. Walsh, of Seba Kent Road, a professor of education and a former Pawtucket teacher, elementary school principal and deputy schools superintendent, died yesterday at home. Born in Pawtucket, where she had lived all her life, she was a daughter of Hazel T. (Trombley) Walsh of Pawtucket and the late Joseph Walsh. She earned her bachelor's degree in elementary education from Rhode Island College, and a Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction from the University of Connecticut. Since 2002, Ms. Walsh had been an adjunct assistant professor at Providence College, where she had been a special lecturer in elementary mathematics and science since 1996. She also had continued to serve as director of literacy programs for Pawtucket schools, a job she had held since 1996. Ms. Walsh had worked in the Pawtucket School Department for 32 years before retiring to take the position at PC. "I feel as if I've lost my right arm," Schools Supt. Hans W. Dellith said in 2001, in announcing her resignation. He praised her to The Providence Journal as a gifted administrator with a talent for getting people to work together: "I've talked to teachers, retired teachers, retired custodians," he said. "Everybody loves Jackie." He was especially effusive on the topic of her work on the district's curriculum redesign, saying that under her, "Pawtucket has made more progress on that than it has in the last 30 years." She had served as a deputy superintendant from 2000 to 2001; as an assistant superintendant from 1993 to 2000; as principal of the Curvin-McCabe School, from 1984 to 1989; a teacher in the city's elementary gifted program from 1982 to 1984; and a sixth-grade teacher at the Agnes E. Little School, where began her career with the city's schools in 1969. "She was gifted, very gifted in the classroom," recalled School Committeeman Jon M. Anderson, who had been a student of Ms. Walsh's in the 1970s. But, he added, the district had thrived because of her administrative skills. "She brings out the best in people," he told The Journal in 2001. Ms. Walsh herself described her retirement from the Pawtucket school system as "the toughest decision I've ever had to make. "I've been so happy here," she said. "I love the people here." But, she added, though she was grateful for the promotions she had received, she found that each one had taken her further from the part of the job that meant the most to her: working with the students. At Providence College, she returned to the classroom, working with undergraduates and graduate students, and helped to oversee the student teaching program. She was a member of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the Delta Kappa Gamma educational sorority, Alpha Delta Kappa International and Pi Lambda Theta. Ms. Walsh also was a trustee of the Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket, where she had served as chair of the program committee. She was a communicant of St. Mary's Church, in Seekonk. Besides her mother, she leaves a sister, Joanne Parker of Mobile, Ala. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated tomorrow at 10 a.m. in St. Mary's Church, Coyle Drive, Seekonk.

JACK WHITE, DEAN OF RHODE ISLAND JOURNALISM, By Eric Tucker, Associated Press writer; Providence -- Jack White, 63, the dean of Rhode Island journalism who won a Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of President Nixon's underpayment of income taxes, along with two Emmy Awards, has died. White died unexpectedly early yesterday morning at his home on Cape Cod, according to WPRI-TV, where he was a reporter. The cause of death was unknown. Though White had been a television reporter for two decades, he began his career in newspapers. While working for The Providence Journal and Evening Bulletin, he won a Pulitzer for National Reporting in 1974 for his story on Nixon's tax troubles. The article prompted Nixon to utter his famous line, "I am not a crook." Universally respected by his colleagues and competitors, White became a mentor to many young reporters over the years. "Whatever he did was right. It was accurate. It was fair," said WJAR-TV reporter Jim Taricani, who said White took him under his wing when he was young, and continued to counsel him in later years. Taricani turned to White when deciding whether to disclose the source of a secret FBI videotape that showed a Providence mayoral aide taking a bribe. White told him not to do it, and Taricani served four months of home confinement. "He was a generous guy, kindhearted and so humble. Here was a guy who won a Pulitzer Prize, and you had to drag it out of him," Taricani said. White's Pulitzer-winning scoop almost didn't happen. Working off a tip and tax documents, White learned that Nixon failed to pay a large portion of his income taxes in 1970 and 1971. The night he was prepared to write the story, in September 1973, the union representing reporters at the newspaper voted to go on strike. White would later recall rolling the story out of his typewriter, folding it up and putting it in his wallet. White said he never thought about giving the story to management, even though he risked missing the story. "I was dreading the information I had was going to get out there. Every day I was checking out-of-town newspapers," he later told The Providence Journal. Twelve days later, the strike ended. The story ran on Oct. 3, 1973. At an Associated Press Managing Editors convention the following month, one of White's colleagues asked Nixon about the story, and Nixon replied, "People have got to know whether or not their president is a crook. Well, I am not a crook." Nixon paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes. White also broke the news in 2001 that former Providence Mayor Vincent "Buddy" Cianci had been indicted on federal corruption charges. Cianci learned of his indictment from White's report, and credited the reporter during a news conference. "By the way, I heard it from the press," Cianci said. "I heard it from Jack White." Asked later in a later WPRI interview how he felt knowing Cianci heard it from him, White said, "I was stunned. But when I realized it was on live TV, I loved it. That was great." The Journal's executive editor, Joel Rawson, called White an "open, accessible, decent man," whose work and Pulitzer helped advance the newspaper's reputation for investigative journalism. "He was a guy that came and reported this community like it mattered -- and it does," Rawson said. WPRI News Director Joe Abouzeid called White "a world class journalist." "Jack was a truly humble man who also made time to help anybody who needed him," he said. Jim Hummel, a veteran Providence journalist, called White an encyclopedia of institutional knowledge, respected by his competitors for his vast wealth of sources and his ability to break stories. "It's the loss of somebody who, in this day and age of television journalism, probably will never be replaced," Hummel said. White began his career in 1969 as a reporter for the Newport Daily News. He moved the following year to the Providence Journal and Evening Bulletin, where he worked as a general assignment reporter, Newport bureau chief and head of the newspaper's first permanent investigative team. He later worked for WBZ-TV in Boston and was a reporter for the Cape Cod Times before joining WPRI in 1985 as chief investigative reporter. Besides his daily reporting duties, he also hosted a weekend morning television program, "Newsmakers," in which he interviewed public officials and fellow journalists about major local stories. White and his wife, Beth, have three sons, a daughter and five grandchildren.
