Culled from various on-line bios:
Born on March 12, 1928, in Washington, D.C … adopted as an infant by Reed Albee, the son of Edward Franklin Albee, a powerful American Vaudeville producer. Brought up in affluence, he chose instead to associate with artists and intellectuals.
At the age of twenty, Albee moved to New York's Greenwich Village where he held a variety of odd jobs including office boy, record salesman, and messenger for Western Union before finally hitting it big with his 1959 play, The Zoo Story. Despite fallow periods, he has a long list of critical hits and impressive awards.
Despite being a poor student at many schools, has of late become a champion of American university theatre, frequently speaking at campuses and even serving as a distinguished professor.
His foundation maintains a writers’ colony in Montauk NY, and he is generous with his time at theatre festivals and playwriting institutes. His long-time partner, sculptor Jonathan Thomas, died on May 2, 2005 of cancer.
