“Beautiful Swimmers” Author Dies

The New York Times today reports that William Warner, who won the Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction in 1977 for his book about Chesapeake Bay crabs and the men who fish them, died on April 18th.

As an ex-Marylander (and a continuing crab enthusiast), I’m sorry to hear the news, but glad his book was received so well and that it lives on, in print and in libraries.
