  5. Norman Mailer (General Non-Fiction, for The Armies Of The Night, 1969; Fiction, for The Executioner's Song, 1980)
  6. Eugene O'Neill (Drama, for Beyond the Horizon, 1920; Drama, for Anna Christie, 1922; Drama, for Strange Interlude, 1928; Drama, for Long Day's Journey Into Night, 1957)

  9. Edwin Arlington Robinson (Poetry, for Collected Poems, 1922; Poetry, for The Man Who Died Twice, 1925; Poetry, for Tristram, 1928)
  10. John Updike (Fiction, for Rabbit Is Rich, 1982; Fiction, for Rabbit at Rest, 1991)

Robert E. Sherwood is, as far as I know, one of only two individuals ever to win four Pulitzer Prizes. So how is it that he's so obscure? I don't think I'd ever heard of him before tonight.
