Miller, Arthur (1915-2005) playwright
Arthur Miller was one of America’s most accomplished playwrights. He is best known for the Pulitzer prize-winning Death of A Salesman (1949), which brought him international fame. Other noted works include A View From the Bridge, All My Sons, and After the Fall. In reaction to what Miller deemed to be governmental abuses of power and the mass hysteria of the McCarthy era, he wrote The Crucible (1953), which would become one of his most produced plays. Miller himself felt the sting of the McCarthy era and was called before the House Committee on Un-American Activities and convicted of contempt of Congress for his refusal to cooperate.
