On this date in 1915, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and Brooklyn Heights resident Arthur Miller was born (d: Feb. 10, 2005). He is best known for “Death of a Salesman” (1949), “The Crucible” (1953), and “A View from the Bridge” (1955/1956). As BHB readers well know, in June 1956, Miller left his first wife Mary Slattery and married Marilyn Monroe—who insisted the couple set up house in Manhattan. He probably should have stayed in Brooklyn Heights: The pair divorced in 1961.
