Ole Larson's Folks

No close family anniversaries. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, on this date in 1924: Truman Streckfus Persons, whose name was later changed to Truman Capote, author, playwright, screenwriter, and actor.  Best known for “In Cold Blood,” which some critics consider the first in a new genre, the “non-fiction novel.” Other well-known works include the novella, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
