This Day in History

Today is the anniversary of the birth of world-renowned American playwright Arthur Miller, born in 1915. Most students will recognize him as the author of the dramas The Crucible and Death of a Salesman, widely studied here at NCC -- but they may not know he was one of Marilyn Monroe's husbands.

The NCC Libraries have a variety of materials related to Arthur Miller's life and works, including the following titles. Another great source of information is the Literature Resource Center database, located on the "Research Databases" page of our web site.
