Aldous Leonard Huxley (26 July 1894 – 22 November 1963) was an English writer, novelist, philosopher,and prominent member of the Huxley family.

10-22-1963:On November 22, 1963, Huxley died of cancer of the larynx, having been diagnosed three years previously. His death received little notice because he died on the same day that then-President John F. Kennedy was shot in Dallas, Texas.

BRAVE NEW WORLD: Published in 1932, it propounds that economic chaos and unemployment will cause a radical reaction in the form of an international scientific empire that manufactures its citizens in the laboratory on a eugenic basis, without the need for human intercourse.On publication, the book earned mixed reviews, but is now seen as one of the most significant novels of the 20th century, consistently ranking high in the major literary league-tables.

 "LSD, 100 µg,  INTRAMUSCULAR." : After his first experience in 1955, Huxley became a great proponent of the usage of LSD. His most famous work on its benefits is The Doors Of Perception, which allowed many people more mainstream than he to accept its ideas. On his deathbed, Huxley made a written request to his wife Laura for "LSD, 100 µg, intramuscular." She obliged with an injection at 11:20 a.m. and a second dose an hour later; Huxley died aged 69, at 5:20 p.m.
