American writer, a noted journalist and playwright.
He won the Pulitzer Prize four times: "Beyond the Horizon," 1920, "Anna Christie," 1922, "Strange Interlude," 1928 and "Long Day's Journey Into Night," 1957.
The youngest son of Mary Ella Quinlan and actor James O'Neill, Eugene had, before the age of 26, worked as a sailor, an actor and a reporter, basing his life among the bums on waterfronts around the world.
By 1950, his career was over. His elder son had committed suicide, and O'Neill could no longer hold a pencil in palsied hands; even his legs and feet were afflicted by the tremor.
When he died on 11/27/1953 in Boston, MA, he weighed only 84 lbs.
