The Lives of Leaders, Artists, Athletes, Scientists, and Soldiers

"My sorrow is for the halted sound of Mozart's musical laughter,
for the painters who were killed in accidents.
I will never see the unfinished canvases in their studios.
My tears are for the poets who died in poverty,
for Frida Kahlo, her entire life spent in pain.
My sorrow is for the lost live sounds
of Glenn Miller's band and Jerry Garcia's guitar,
the lost voices of Bessie Smith, Janis Joplin, and Roy Orbison,
for Carole Lombard's lost life, the films she never made,
for the entire 1961 US Skating Team
killed in a plane crash, their burnt skates in the rubble.
My tears are for the stilled feet of the dancers who died of AIDS."
_ Concerto for Narrative Data

  • Masaccio
    (December 21, 1401 - 1428)
    Masaccio was among the first Renaissance artists to paint explicit nudes.
    He died at age 26 of suspected poisoning a few years after he painted
    Expulsion from the Garden of Eden in the Brancacci Chapel in the
    Church of Santa Maria del Carmine in Florence. Echoing the painting,
    Felice Brancacci, the patron of this work, was expelled from Florence.

    Writers

  • Anne Askew
    (1521 -1546)
    English writer and Protestant reformer Ann Askew was tortured on the rack
    in the Tower of London until she was unable to walk.
    It would seem from the accounts that she was tortured not only
    for her faith but also because she was a strong woman writer
    who not only stood up for what she believed but also wrote about it
    Ann Askew was only 25 years old when she was burned at the stake.

    Stanford cancer research who killed himself before testifying in front of HUAC.
    In a statement that HUAC did not allow her to read, his wife wrote:
    "...Throughout his lifetime, my husband had but one goal: to ease the suffering
    of mankind. It was this goal that drew his to support the Loyalists in the
    Spanish Civil War, that inspired his youthful identification with radical causes.
    It was this goal that led him, when greater maturity had mellowed and
    deepened his understanding, to abandon politics completely and devote
    himself single-mindedly to science.
    Is it a crime for a young man in his twenties to dream of a bright new world?..."
