Harvey Schmidt was also included in the Tony's memorial tribute. He and 
Jones will always be remembered for The Fantasticks but I've enjoyed 
their other works as well--anyone (else) remember "I Do! I Do!"?

Tom Jones is of course also well known as a Welsh singer, and as the 
lead character in a novel by Fielding.
