Studs Terkel, American historian, actor, television and radio broadcaster, and author (May 16, 1912 - October 31, 2008) was born Louis Terkel to Russian Jewish immigrants, Samuel Terkel, a tailor, and Anna (Annie) Finkel, a seamstress, in New York City; at the age of eight, he moved with his family to Chicago, Illinois, where he spent most of his life. Studs Terkel received the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction in 1985 for "The Good War", and is best remembered for his oral histories of common Americans, and his well-known radio program, titled The Studs Terkel Program, aired on 98.7 WFMT Chicago between 1952 and 1997. In the late 1940s and early 1950s, Terkel was also the central character of Studs' Place, one of televisions earliest regularly scheduled series presentations, an unscripted television drama about the owner of a greasy-spoon diner in Chicago through which many famous people and interesting characters passed. This show, along with Marlin Perkins' Zoo Parade, Garroway at Large and the children' show Kukla, Fran, and Ollie, are widely considered canonical examples of the Chicago School of Television. Studs Terkel dies in his Chicago home on Friday, October 31, 2008, at the age of 96; he had been suffering ever since a fall in his home earlier that month. #StudsTerkel #Historians #Actors #Radio #Television #PulitzerPrize #PulitzerPrizeForLiterature #ChicagoSchoolOfTelevision #Literature #GoldenAgeOfTV #DVD #VideoDownload #MP4 #USBFlashDrive
