Tuesday's question was about the author Thornton Wilder, who called Douglas, Arizona, home for about 18 months in the early 60s. That question was suggested by author (and KXCI member) Tom Miller, who in 2009 wrote an article about Wilder's Douglas days for the Smithsonian Magazine. You can read it here.
