A lifelong passion for swimming and 30 years of lifeguard work helped Robert Bartlett stay alive in stormy seas off Long Beach on Sunday night. But nothing prepared him for the moment when he had to let go of his unconscious friend, who had fallen overboard from their sailboat. Bartlett had jumped into the ocean to save 63-year-old Marlan Weech, his co-worker and the owner of the sailboat, after Weech had lost his balance in a swell.

Robert Bartlett Haas, a longtime UCLA educator who spent years immersed in the writings of Gertrude Stein, has died. He was 94. Haas died April 20 in a hospital in Nuertingen, Germany, after a brief illness, said his son, Peter. He had spent most of his retirement years in Germany. Haas' interest in Stein, the experimental American writer and poet, dated to his years as an undergraduate student at UC Berkeley. They started corresponding and finally met in 1946, shortly before her death in France at age 72. Haas "was one of the young men who sought out Gertrude Stein as a mentor and was rewarded with years of encouragement and friendship and who, in turn, devoted a measure of his academic life to bolstering Stein's reputation," Timothy Young, curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts at Yale University's Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, told The Times in an e-mail.

Karen Stare can still recall how terrified she was 12 years ago after her first child was born prematurely with a life-threatening respiratory disease and placed on a then-radical support system. "She was this big," Stare said, gesturing about eight inches, "and all red. Both tubes were coming out of her neck. She was on a respirator and had an umbilical catheter. "She was such a fighter. . . . They had to pin her down with safety pins."
