Obit Analysis

| No Comments

The obituary I used for my analysis was for Lincoln Hall, from the LA Times.

Lincoln Hall dies at 56; climber survived Mt. Everest ordeal

The obituary used Hall's quotes, his book, his website, newspaper articles about him, a magazine article about him, and other people's quotes about him.

The article did not use a standard lead, however I think it adds to the story. The alternative lead is about the reason he's famous.

The obituary is different from a resume because it goes beyond accomplishments and proficiencies. It tells the story behind his quirks and famous aspects. The obit also includes information provided from other people.
