Randy Walker, the Northwestern University football coach whose training methods were scrutinized after the practice-field death of defensive back Rashidi Wheeler nearly five years ago, has died. He was 52. The cause was an apparent heart attack. Walker experienced chest pains before dying Thursday night at his suburban Chicago home, a university spokesman said. Walker's death stunned a program that under his leadership shed its pre-1995 reputation as a college football laughingstock.

Northwestern University has punished its men's swim team and students who perform as the school's mascot for hazing, a school spokesman said Wednesday, only days after the school suspended its women's soccer team amid similar allegations. The swim team's hazing occurred in September and involved underage drinking, swimming in Lake Michigan when the beaches were closed and "additional inappropriate behavior," said Mike Wolf, Northwestern's assistant athletic director for media services.

Styled like an old-fashioned travel Baedeker, it's a compilation of every residential, commercial or civic structure designed by the inimitable architect (about 500 of them), including those that never were built, and those designed for Iraq, India and Japan.
