July 11, 1991 | MICHAEL WILMINGTON, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
1941 was, in many ways, the first year of the Modern Era--a year when an America recovering from a decade of Depression felt itself pulled, inexorably, toward war; the year of the Fair Employment Practices Act and the Manhattan Project; of Edward Hopper's "Nighthawks," and Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak. And, on Dec. 7, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor and the nation was plunged into devastating conflict. It was a year of tumult, anxiety and change.

Tony Martin, one of the last of the big-name singer-actors from the golden age of Hollywood musicals, has died. He was 98. Martin, who toured for years with his wife, dancer-actress Cyd Charisse, died of natural causes Friday at his home in Los Angeles, his longtime business manager, Stan Schneider, told The Times. He appeared in more than 30 films, most memorably as a thief at odds with Peter Lorre's inspector in 1948's stylish "Casbah," one of the many movie musicals that helped turn Martin into a star.

Reader Stern erred is his May 13 letter when he said one Boston sportswriter didn't vote for Ted Williams as MVP the year he hit .406. That happened in 1947, when Ted won the triple crown but lost to Joe DiMaggio by one vote because one writer left him off his "top 10" list. Ted hit .406 with 37 homers in 1941, the year DiMaggio hit in 56 consecutive games and won the MVP. Ted also won the triple crown in 1942, but the writers gave the MVP award to the Yankees' Joe Gordon. Gordon had a .322 batting average, 18 home runs and 103 RBIs.

With two hits, a run batted in and a run scored, Luis Castillo beat the Cleveland Indians and tied Rogers Hornsby. "Who?" Castillo said. Even though his grasp on baseball history is shaky, he's creating some himself. Castillo matched Hornsby's 80-year record for the longest hitting streak by a second baseman, going two for four to make it 33 games in a row Wednesday night as the Florida Marlins defeated Cleveland, 2-1. Castillo had a hand in both Florida runs.

When the U.S. government occupied their land and bulldozed their seafront homes here, Anthony Tardieu recalled, "the family was given two days to get out at the point of a gun. And they left there crying." It was 1941--the year World War II came to the Caribbean--and the U.S. Navy had chosen this remote isle just off Venezuela for a 12-square-mile operations base that served as the linchpin of Washington's outer defenses.

When Joseph Paul DiMaggio died at 84 in 1999, there were few people left alive who had ever seen him play. His time as a ballplayer (1936-1951) preceded the triumph of television and was witnessed by paying customers in an era when there were no major league teams west of the Mississippi. To be sure, his accomplishments as a New York Yankee glittered on the sports pages of the time, and his form as a batter, glimpsed in movie house newsreels, was powerful and elegant.

John Goodspeed, the former Baltimore Evening Sun columnist who collected examples of the city's linguistic train wrecks and christened the mispronunciations Baltimorese, died Sept. 10 of pulmonary fibrosis at his home in Easton, Md. He was 86. From 1950 until he stepped down in 1967, Goodspeed chronicled the city, its habits and people in "Peep's Diary," a weekday column that appeared under a sketch of the Baltimore skyline.

Marshal Viktor G. Kulikov, commander in chief of Warsaw Pact forces since 1977, stepped down Thursday in the latest phase of President Mikhail S. Gorbachev's shake-up of the Soviet military. Kulikov, 67, will be replaced by Gen. Pyotr G. Lushev, 65, a first deputy defense minister and a former commander of Soviet troops in East Germany, the official news agency Tass said. A Russian traditionally holds the top military post in the seven-state, Soviet-led Warsaw Pact.
