playwright & author Abe Burrows [1910-85]
The musical stageplay "Guys and Dolls" by Abe Burrows & Jo Swerling (based on stories of Damon Runyon) was selected as winner of the 1951 Pulitzer Prize for Drama;
however, because Burrows was under investigation by the House Un-American Activities Committee (H.U.A.C.), the Trustees of Columbia University vetoed the selection,
and no Pulitzer for Drama was awarded that year.
