Maury Allen, 78
After spending two years at SI, Allen went on to become a widely read columnist for the New York Post and a prolific author—he wrote more than three dozen books.
Vernon Biever, 87
The longtime team photographer for the Packers had countless football pictures appear in SI; his son John has shot regularly for the magazine since 1988.
Ron Fimrite, 79
In his 34 years writing for SI, Fimrite turned in stories—always on a manual typewriter—about a number of sports, but none more than baseball, a beat he owned in the 1970s.
Dick Francis, 89
A former jockey who wrote more than 40 novels, many of them horse racing mysteries, Francis wrote a short story for SI in 1970 and a run-up to the Kentucky Derby in '73.
Donald Moss, 90
No illustrator produced more SI covers than Moss, whose most famous work featured Muhammad Ali and George Foreman before their 1974 heavyweight title fight in Zaire.
