Death of a Designer

Prolific production designer Don Roberts, whose set for “All in the Family” — including Archie Bunker’s chair — now rests on permanent display at Washington’s Smithsonian Institution, died last Sunday of a brain tumor. He was 64. In addition to the Bunker set, he designed pilots and numerous episodes of 46 popular series, including “Mary Hartman,” “The Jeffersons,” “Three’s Company” and “Married with Children.”
