Author Tom Clancy Passes Away at Age 66

Tom Clancy, the best-selling author who created classic characters such as Jack Ryan, passed away at the age of 66 yesterday in a Baltimore, Maryland hospital. Ivan Held, the president of the author's publishing house, G.P. Putnam's Sons, confirmed his passing, although a cause of death was not released at this time.

Tom Clancy was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1947, and was obsessed with naval history at a very young age, spending his childhood reading books and journals intended for much older readers. He graduated from Loyola College in Baltimore in 1969 with a degree in English, and although he wanted to join the armed forces, he couldn't qualify for enlistment because he is nearsighted. He worked at a local insurance agency before publishing his first novel, The Hunt for Red October, in 1985, for which he received just $5,000.
