    (June 16, 1937-January 17, 2010)
    Born in Brooklyn, New York
    Classics professor at Yale, Harvard and Princeton
    Best known for the novel 'Love Story' (1970)
    Also wrote 'Oliver's Story' (1977), 'Man, Woman and Child' (1980), 'The Class' (1985), 'Doctors' (1988), 'Acts of Faith' (1992), 'Prizes' (1995) and 'Only Love' (1998)
    He was rejected for a staff writer position at the 'Harvard Crimson.'
    'Love Story' started as a screenplay and was turned into a novel only after no studio expressed interest in it.
    He gave us the hokey line 'Love means never having to say you're sorry.'
    When 'Love Story' was submitted for the National Book Award, two judges threatened to resign and Segal himself admitted, 'I honestly don’t think I should be placed on the same page as Bellow and Updike.'
    He co-wrote the screenplay for the Beatles film 'Yellow Submarine.' (1968)
    'Love Story' was the best-selling novel of 1970 and the highest grossing film of 1971.
    He served as an Olympics commentator for ABC.
    He wrote a scholarly history of comedy from the ancient Greeks to Kubrick's 'Dr. Strangelove.'
