Zelda Fitzgerald, American writer, dancer and Jazz-age belle - died this day in 1948, aged 47, caught in a fire in the sanatorium she had committed herself to for shock therapy…  Zelda is now buried in the same grave as her estranged husband F. Scott Fitzgerald. They share an epitaph that quotes the end of his novel, The Great Gatsby:  So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
