Author Bio
Arthur Miller
Arthur Miller, the son of a coat manufacturer and a schoolteacher, grew up in the Midwood section of Brooklyn. After graduating from high school he worked at an auto supply warehouse. He graduated from the University of Michigan in 1938; he also worked as a mouse tender in the university labs, and a night editor for the "Michigan Daily". His plays began winning awards in 1936 and in 1938 he won the Theatre Guild Award; he has also received several New York Drama Critics Circle Awards, the Pulitzer Prize, a Tony Award, and has served as president of PEN. In 1940, Miller married Mary Grace Slattery. They had two children, Jane and Robert, but the marriage ended in divorce. In 1956 he married Marilyn Monroe; that same year Miller was called to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee. When he refused to name names, he was held in contempt of Congress, and it wasn't for another two and a half years that his conviction was overturned on a technicality. In 1962, after his marriage to Monroe also ended in divorce, Miller married Ingeborg Morath; they have two children, Rebecca and Daniel. He was honored as the Distinguished Contributor to American Letters by the National Book Foundation in 2001.
