Today Marks 80 Years in Virginia Woolf’s Suicide Death

Tragically, on this day, 28 March 1941, 80 years ago, world renown author Virginia Woolf, filled her pockets with rocks and committed suicide by walking into the River Ouse where she drowned. She was only 59.

Twenty years later, another great author would take his life, too. On 2 July 1961, Ernest Hemingway, committed suicide near the Sun Valley community of Ketchum, Idaho. Hemingway was 61.
