DEACON, JAMES  
JAMES DEACON James E. Deacon, Distinguished Professor Emeritus in the Departments of Environmental Studies and Biological Sciences passed away Feb. 23, 2015. Prof. Deacon received his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas in 1960 and joined UNLV the same year. He was promoted to Full Professor in 1968 and received the campus' highest academic honor as Distinguished Professor in 1988. Jim's major research efforts centered on regional ecology, the biology and conservation of desert fishes and later, sustainable water supply and use. He published more than 90 peer-reviewed articles and chapters and numerous interpretive articles, reports and advocacy essays. On campus, Prof. Deacon served as Chair of the Department of Biological Sciences and was the Founding Director and later Chair of the Department of Environmental Studies. He was instrumental in establishing UNLV's first M.S. and Ph.D. programs in both Biology and Environmental Science. He mentored more than 25 masters and doctoral students and taught "across the (undergraduate and graduate) curriculum" in both Biological Sciences and Environmental Studies during his 42 year UNLV career. Prof. Deacon was a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and received major awards from the American Fisheries Society, the National Wildlife Federation and The Nature Conservancy. He was a founding member of the Desert Fishes Council (in 1970) and was Chair of the organization from 1976-78. Most recently (2012) Jim received the E.O. Wilson Award for Outstanding Science in Biodiversity Conservation from the Center for Biological Diversity. He was instrumental in securing vital water rights for Death Valley and Zion National Parks as well as Moapa and Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuges, the latter confirmed in behalf of the Devils Hole Pupfish (Cyprinodon diabolis) through a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 1976. Jim remained professionally productive and actively engaged throughout his life. His most recent book chapter is in review, and just this past week, he beamed his widely recognized and joyous Deacon smile upon hearing that his second great-grandchild had been born. Jim Deacon is survived by his wife, Mary Dale Deacon; his daughter, Cindy; son-in-law, Jack Williams; grandsons, Austin and Josh Williams; great-grandchildren, Mason and Morgan Williams; former wife, Maxine Cost; brother, Dick Deacon; sisters, Marilyn Pimperton, Ruth Mitchell, Judy Deacon, and Melinda Deacon.

For those who would like to make a philanthropic gift in Jim's honor, his family suggests donations to either the James E. Deacon Scholarship Endowment (UNLV Foundation) or to Nevada conservation efforts via The Nature Conservancy.

CHESNOFF, RICHARD  
RICHARD CHESNOFF Richard Z. Chesnoff, born June 4, 1937, passed away Saturday morning, Feb. 21, in Riverdale, N.Y., following a brief illness. He was 77. Mr. Chesnoff was widely regarded as one of the most respected and knowledgeable journalists covering the Middle East. Early in his career he was a reporter for NBC News and the International Herald Tribune, before becoming the bureau chief in Paris for Newsweek. After returning to the United States, he served as the executive editor of Newsweek International and later was the senior correspondent for US News & World Report covering the Middle East. He was the winner of several Overseas Press Club Awards for his Middle East coverage, and wrote for the Daily News. He regularly appeared on CNN and Fox News. He spent many years in the Philippines as the honored guest of President Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos, later becoming the first reporter to interview Col. Muammar Gaddafi after President Reagan bombed Libya in 1986. He was the author of several well-received books, including, "If Israel Lost The War" with Ed Klein and Robert Littell, "Philippines, Pack of Thieves" and "The Arrogance of the French." The last one ironic only because Mr. Chesnoff was a passionate Francophile, and lived in France for many years, first in Paris, and later renovating a medieval stone house in the ancient village of Saint-Siffret, in the Gard region of southern France. Mr. Chesnoff was a raconteur, bon vivant, music and theater-lover; he loved beautiful things, and filled his New York apartment with collections, from paintings, to birdcages, to antique Santos statues, lovingly curated from all over the world. A Renaissance man, he spoke English, French, Hebrew and Yiddish, attending the Hebrew University at age 18, which led to a lifelong love of Israel. He was a contributor to the Hebrew University and the Metropolitan Opera, and punctuated his life with gusto and laughter, loving nothing more than entertaining people with his encyclopedic knowledge of Jewish jokes, which led to him performing as part of Old Jews Telling Jokes. The son of Lewis and Martha Chesnoff of Paterson, N.J., Mr. Chesnoff is survived by his brothers, Robert and David Chesnoff; sisters-in-law, Mimi Zeltner and Diana Chesnoff; son, Adam Chesnoff; daughter-in-law, Lissa; grandchildren, Benjamin and Nathaniel; stepson, Ian; daughter-in-law, Jane Green, grandchildren, Max, Henri, Harry, Tabitha, Nate and Jasper; stepson, Paul Warburg; daughter-in-law, Shannon; and grandchildren, Ella and Honor. Services were held Monday, Feb. 23, at the Riverside Memorial Chapel in New York City. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Mr. Chesnoff's memory to The American Friends of the Hebrew University, One Battery Park Plaza, 25th Floor, New York, NY 10004, (212) 607-8500 or (800) 567-AFHU.
