Arthur Miller's Missing Act

The playwright Arthur Miller had a life that seemed well-filled. He wrote The Crucible, Death of a Salesman, A View from the Bridge. He was married to Marilyn Monroe. He won the Pulitzer Prize. He bravely refused to give evidence to the House Un-American Activities Committee. He was a social activist. Full indeed. However, his life wasn't as full as it could have been in that he deleted his Down-syndrome child from his life. The disturbing story is in Vanity Fair.
