Born in Harlem, New York City, on October 17, 1915, Arthur Miller studied playwriting at the University of Michigan. His first Broadway play, The Man Who Had All the Luck, produced in 1944, was not a commercial success, but All My Sons, in 1947, achieved both popular and critical acclaim, winning the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play and Tony Awards for Miller and for director Elia Kazan. Death of a Salesman followed in 1949, winning not only another New York Drama Critics' Circle Award and Tonys for play and playwright, but also the Pulitzer Prize. The Crucible, produced in 1953, also won a Tony for Best Play.
Miller's other plays include A View From the Bridge and A Memory of Two Mondays (1955), After the Fall (1964), Incident at Vichy (1964), The Price (1968), The Creation of the World and Other Business (1972), The Archbishop's Ceiling (1977), The American Clock (1980), The Ride Down Mt. Morgan (1991), The Last Yankee (1993), Broken Glass (1994), Mr. Peters' Connections (1998), Resurrection Blues (2002) and Finishing the Picture (2004).
