Richard Barclay, 72, whose work in civil engineering and real estate development spanned more than 40 years in Southern California, died Tuesday of heart failure. Barclay founded the firm of Barclay Hollander Curci Inc. in the early 1950s, the first in California to develop condominiums. During his career, he built more than 30,000 homes in the state and developed many industrial and commercial properties. His company also provided work crews to build Los Angeles International Airport.

There was relief among those in the county's arts community Thursday, the day after a judge ordered the widow of developer Richard H. Barclay to finish paying a $1-million pledge her husband made to build the Irvine Barclay Theatre. Legal experts called the decision clear-cut: If you make a pledge and get something for it--whether it's a coffee mug or your name on a building--you must pay up. Most organizations don't take pledge scofflaws to court unless it involves large sums of money.

The theater bears his name because developer Richard H. Barclay pledged $1 million toward its construction. But after receiving only $400,000, the Irvine Barclay Theatre took his widow, Marjorie Barclay, to court for the rest of the money--and Wednesday it won. Orange County Superior Court Judge James H. Poole ruled that a one-page agreement between Richard Barclay and the theater was valid and enforceable and ordered Marjorie Barclay and her husband's estate to pay the full pledge.

What is it? A 31-inch-by-19-inch color poster of beach volleyball player Randy Stoklos signed by the athlete. What's its history? Posters have been around since the 1860s, when the French began to make lithographic postersto announce, promote and sell. Because this design form only had a second to catch someone's attention, bright colors and simple designs were used. In the U.S., posters were an effective method of mass communication, especially before 1920.
