The writer Dudley Clendinen died last week at age 67. We speak with people who knew him, and hear from Dudley both before and after his diagnosis of ALS.
Dudley was open about his experience with terminal illness, both in the op-ed pages of The Times, and on Maryland Morning, where he spoke about the disease in a series of interviews with Tom Hall called “Living with Lou: Dudley Clendinen on a Good, Short Life.”
Tom Hall’s remembrance of Dudley was broadcast on WYPR on Thursday, May 31. You can listen above, or a transcript is available here. The music used is “Ae Fond Kiss” by Corrina Hewat from My Favorite Places. You can listen to it here.
Funeral services will be held on Monday, June 4, at 10 am at the Cathedral of the Incarnation on University Parkway in Baltimore. In lieu of flowers, please make contributions in Dudley’s name to the Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins or to Joseph Richey Hospice.
