Biographical / Historical

Gore Vidal (1925-2012) was an American author of novels, theatrical plays, television scripts, screenplays, and essays whose career began in the years immediately following World War II and continued into the twenty-first century, until his death in 2012. He was a public figure in American politics and cultural discourse. In addition to a sequence of seven novels about American history as well as other fiction (such as Myra Breckinridge and Duluth), Vidal also wrote three mystery novels under the pseudonym, Edgar Box. Vidal was an essayist as well composing well over a hundred essays gathered in several volumes published between 1962 and 2001.

In 1925, Gore Vidal was born Eugene Luther Gore Vidal in West Point (N.Y.), the only child of Eugene Luther Vidal (1901-1969) and Nina Gore (1903-1978), later known as Nina Olds. His birth took place at the Cadet Hospital of the United States Military Academy where his father was the school's first aeronautics instructor.

In 1935, his parents divorced. Nina Gore married Hugh D. Auchincloss, and then divorced him in 1941. Nina Gore had two children from that marriage, Nina Auchincloss (later known as Nina Auchincloss Steers Straight) and Thomas G. Auchincloss. After the divorce, Hugh Auchincloss married Jacqueline Kennedy's mother, Janet Lee Auchincloss, which established a relationship between the Vidal and Kennedy families. In 1936, Gore Vidal attended St. Albans School in Washington (D.C.). He lived with his maternal grandfather, Thomas Pryor Gore (1870-1949), in his home in Rock Creek Park (Washington, D.C.). T.P. Gore was the Democratic senator from Oklahoma. Since Senator Gore was blind, the young Gore Vidal read aloud to him and became his guide in the Senate corridors.

Gore Vidal attended Los Alamos Ranch School in Los Alamos County (N.M.) in 1939. Eugene Luther Vidal (Gore Vidal's father) married Katherine Roberts in that year, and had two children from that marriage, Gene Vance Vidal and Valerie Vidal. In 1940, Gore Vidal attended Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter (N.H.).

In 1941, Gore Vidal dropped the names "Eugene Luther" to become Gore Vidal. Nina Auchincloss married Robert Olds, director of Wright Air Force Base in 1942, and in 1943, Gore Vidal enlisted in the United States Army and attended the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington (Va.) Gore Vidal wrote his first novel,Williwaw, in 1945, during the time he was in service in the Aleutian Islands (Alaska) and while recovering from a combination of frostbite and arthritis in an army hospital. In 1946, Gore Vidal moved to Antigua (Guatemala). His friend Anaïs Nin visits. Tennessee Williams and Gore Vidal traveled in Europe in 1948. That same year, The city and the pillar was published.

In 1950, Gore Vidal moved to Barrytown (N.Y.) and bought a house named Edgewater on the Hudson River. Gore Vidal met his life companion, Howard Austen (former name: Howard Auster), who worked for an advertising agency in New York (N.Y.). Austen moved to Edgewater. In 1955, Gore Vidal's A visit to a small planet was broadcast live on television. He moved to the Chateau Marmont (Los Angeles, Calif.) where he became friends with Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. In 1959, as a contract writer for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Vidal agreed to work with the director William Wyler on the screenplay for the film Ben-Hur. Vidal agreed to rework the script on the condition that MGM would let him out of the last two years of his contract.

Vidal's play The best man opened on Broadway in 1960. Vidal ran for Congress in New York's 29th Congressional District, losing the election by a small margin. In 1963, Vidal and Howard Austen moved to Rome (Italy). Julian was published in 1964, and in 1966, Washington D.C. was published; the first novel in what Gore Vidal called his "narratives of empire" series. In 1968, Myra Breckinridge was published. ABC News hired Vidal and William F. (William Frank) Buckley as political analysts of the Republican and Democratic presidential conventions. A heated exchange between Buckley and Vidal occurs during a televised debate on ABC on 1968 August 22 during the Democratic National Convention (1968: Chicago, Ill.). This later produces a civil action.

Vidal served as chairman of the New Party (U.S.) for two years (1970-1972). In 1971, he purchased a home, La Rondinaia, in Ravello (Italy). Burr was published in 1972 and 1876 was published in 1976. In 1982, Gore Vidal ran in the California primary race for Senate; he was second after Jerry Brown.

In 1984 Lincoln was published; Empire followed. In1993, United States: Essays, 1952-1992 was published and won the National Book Award. His memoir, Palimpsest, was published in 1995, and in 2000, The Golden Age, the last novel in Gore Vidal's "Narratives of Empire" series, was published.

In 2003, Vidal and partner Austen move from their house in Ravello to California. Howard Austen died this same year, and in 2006, Gore Vidal sells the house in Ravello. Gore Vidal died at his home in Hollywood Hills, California, on July 31, 2012, of complications from pneumonia at eighty-six years of age.
