The obituary page of The New York Times is a celebration of extraordinary lives. This groundbreaking package includes 300+ obits of the most important and fascinating obituaries the Times has ever published.
 
The obituary page is the section many readers first turn to not only see who died, but to read some of the most inspiring, insightful, often funny, and elegantly written stories celebrating the lives of the men and women who have influenced on our world.
