William J. Lederer, R. I. P.

William J. Lederer, Author of ‘The Ugly American,’ Dies - Obituary (Obit) - "William J. Lederer, a writer and career naval officer who, with Eugene Burdick, wrote “The Ugly American,” a novel that was among the first books to deal with American involvement in Southeast Asia and that barely veiled a blistering critique of the nation’s foreign policy there, died on Dec. 5 in Baltimore. He was 97."
