John Steinbeck    1902-1968

 

Steinbeck won

the Nobel Prize

for Literature in 1962

for a life's work writing

about those who

had been roughed up by history

— most notably

his Depression-era novels,

Of Mice And Men

and The Grapes of Wrath.

 

Four years later,

Steinbeck left for Vietnam

to cover the war firsthand.

 

His dispatches appeared

in Newsday in 1966 and 1967
