David Halberstam, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and journalist known for his commentary on political situations, civil rights, and sports, was killed in a car crash in California on Monday, April 23rd. Halberstam was on his way to an interview with a Hall of Fame quarterback, having just given a speech on journalism the night before, at Berkeley. Halberstam was equally at ease speaking of history, politics and the world of sports.

There is a display of books by David Halberstam on the table in the Rand Room at Perrot. Or, for a list of all of Halberstam's books available through the Greenwich Library system, click here.
