David Halberstam 1934 - 2007

Pulitzer Prizewinning author David Halberstam was killed yesterday in a car crash in Northern California. He was the author of numerous books on politics, sports, and other issues of American life. His major work The Best and the Brightest, took the Kennedy and Johnson administrations to task for the Vietnam War and in The Powers That Be he chastised major media (as Bill Moyers will do tomorrow night) for helping to sell the war. As well as many of his books various biographical accounts of Halberstam's works can be found in the Glendale Public Library database Biography Resource Center.
