              WILLIAM STYRON DIES AT AGE 81

William Clark Styron, Jr. died November 1, 2006 of pneumonia. 
Styron was an American novelist, best known for two contro-
versial novels: the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Confessions of 
Nat Turner, the leader of an 1831 Virginia slave revolt. 
Though Styron’s paternal grandparents had been slave owners, 
his Northern mother and liberal Southern father gave him a 
broad perspective on race relations unusual for his gener-
ation. Styron spent years researching and composing the novel, 
the fictitious memoirs of the historical Nat Turner. Despite 
the controversy, the novel became a runaway critical and 
financial success, eventually winning the 1968 Pulitzer Prize 
for Fiction.

          ARNOLD "RED" AUERBACH DIES AT AGE 89

Arnold Jacob "Red" Auerbach died October 28, 2006 of a heart 
attack. Nicknamed "Red" from his fiery hair, he was an American 
coach and executive for the Boston Celtics in the National 
Basketball Association. As coach of the Celtics from 1950 to 
1966, Auerbach won nine NBA titles including eight straight 
from 1959 to 1966 – the longest string of championships in the 
history of North American professional sports. After retiring 
from coaching, he continued to serve as the general manager or 
president of the Celtics from 1966 until 1997, and again as 
president from 2001 until his death. In 1980 he was named the 
greatest coach in the history of the NBA by the Professional 
Basketball Writers Association of America.
