Remembering Aldous Leonard Huxley (26 July 1894 – 22 November 1963)

Today, Saturday November 22nd, is the 45th anniversary of the death of author, poet, screenwriter, and visionary, Aldous Huxley.

Huxley is someone I’m interested in, having written two books; Aldous Huxley Recollected, and Huxley in Hollywood. Both are available at my website, If you want to know more about this fascinating man who had such an influence on the American culture of the mid-20th century, be sure to read these books.

As a side note, this date is also the 45th anniversary of the deaths of President John F. Kennedy and novelist, academic, medievalist, literary critic, and essayist, C.S. Lewis. Coincidence? Probably.
