An article on Tuesday about the indictment of the financier Jeffrey Epstein on sex-trafficking charges misstated the given name of a government lawyer. He is Alexander Rossmiller, not Andrew.

An article on Friday about the ways in which personal identity shaped the lives of people in the L.G.B.T.Q. community referred incorrectly to AIDS. It is an acquired immunodeficiency disease, not an autoimmune disease.


An article on Sunday about the lack of lesbian-themed shows on Broadway misstated the year “The Children’s Hour” was last seen on Broadway. It was last seen on Broadway in 1953, not 1936.


An obituary on Saturday about Barry Kowalski, the Justice Department lawyer who won the convictions of two Los Angeles police officers in 1993 for the beating of Rodney G. King, misstated the month in 1991 when that beating happened. It was March, not June.

Because of an editing error, an obituary on Tuesday about the lyricist and director Martin Charnin omitted part of the name of a television special starring Anne Bancroft that he won an Emmy Award for producing. It was “Annie, the Women in the Life of a Man” — not “Annie, the Women in the Life.”

An obituary on June 5 about the ophthalmologist and inventor Dr. Patricia Bath, using information from the National Library of Medicine and the United States Patent and Trademark Office, referred incorrectly to the influence of the apparatus Dr. Bath patented for the treatment of cataracts by laser. Her method is in use worldwide — not her device, which was never commercially marketed. And it is the method, not the specific device, that helped to “restore or improve vision to millions of patients worldwide.” This correction was delayed for research.

An obituary on Tuesday about Janne E. Nolan, an expert on international affairs and arms-control issues, misidentified the university from which she received a master’s degree in law and diplomacy. It was Tufts, not Stanford.
