Cultural historian who helped end censorship of "Lady Chatterley's Lover," dies
Richard Hoggart, a distinguished cultural historian and a significant witness in the court case that ended British censorship of "Lady Chatterley's Lover," has died at age 95.
His family announced that Hoggart died Thursday at a nursing home in London.
The trial in 1960, which ended with the jury finding that D.H. Lawrence's novel was not obscene, was a landmark for free expression at the outset of London's "swinging sixties."
