Anniversary of Arthur Miller's Death


Today is the anniversary of playwright Arthur Miller's death. He passed away at his home in Connecticut on Feb. 10, 2005 at the ripe old age of 89. He is pictured in this AP photo in 1959 with his then wife Marilyn Monroe.

Though born in Manhattan, Miller was raised in Brooklyn and spent many of his adult years in the borough as well.

The Brooklyn Eagle has more on his career (the highlight being "Death of a Salesman") and his time in the Brooklyn.
