Error corrections or clarifications

* Some past editions of The Cambridge Biographical Encyclopedia erroneously report he was still alive well into the 1990s, when he actually died in 1989.

** Source: Huey's widow
Note that his second marriage did not take place in 1981 as some sources erroneously report. He had certainly known his second wife long before they were married, but they were not wed until 1984.
