Deaths of note from around the world:

Peter Glaser, 90: A private engineering consultant who in the late 1960s envisioned a way to harness limitless solar power in space and transmit it for use on Earth via invisible microwaves — a notion so intriguing that the government spent $20 million studying it, only to conclude that it was too complex and expensive. Died May 29 in Lexington, Mass.

Mary Anthony, 76: Modern dancer known since the 1940s for the lyricism and drama in her choreography, but even better as a teacher of some of American dance’s leading performers and choreographers. Died Saturday in Manhattan.

Rivers Patout, 97: Feisty Catholic priest who for four decades ministered to sailors at the Houston International Seafarer’s Center. Died Monday.
