Leee Black Childers, a...

...photographer, died at age 68. (I didn't misspell his first name.) From Childers's obit in the Times:

According to a story Mr. Childers told [his assistant], when Lee was 6 or 7 he insisted on writing his first name with three E’s, which caused a frustrated teacher to call his mother to school. His mother defended the spelling, and from then on he was known as Leee.

Everybody's got a shtick.
