NORWALK, Conn. -- Happy Birthday To Norwalk’s A. Scott Berg!
Andrew Scott Berg, who has owned a home in Norwalk, turns 64 on Wednesday. The biographer was born Dec. 4, 1949, in Norwalk, CT.
Berg expanded his senior thesis on editor Maxwell Perkins into a full-length biography, Max Perkins: Editor of Genius (1978), which won a National Book Award in 1980.
His third book, a highly anticipated biography of aviator Charles Lindbergh, was published in 1998 and it became a New York Times Best Seller and won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography.
He also wrote the story for Making Love (1982), a controversial film that was the first major studio drama to address the subjects of gay love, closeted marriages, and coming out. He has contributed articles to magazines such as Architectural Digest and Vanity Fair.
He served on Princeton University's Board of Trustees from 1999 to 2003.
In 2003, he published Kate Remembered, a biography-cum-memoir about his friendship with actress Katharine Hepburn that received mixed reviews and completed a biography of Woodrow Wilson, which was released on Sept. 10, 2013.
