WILLIAM BRADFORD HUIE, AUTHOR OF KLANSMAN'

Author William Bradford Huie, who wrote books about violence in the civil rights movement in the South, died Nov. 22, 1986, apparently of a heart attack. He was 76. He wrote such civil rights books as ''The Klansman,'' ''Three Lives For Mississippi'' and ''He Slew the Dreamer,'' a biography of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s convicted assassin, James Earl Ray. Mr. Huie also wrote two books that were later made into successful films or television movies, ''The Execution of Private Slovik,'' which is about the last U.S. soldier executed for desertion, and ''The Americanization of Emily.''

Relatives found Mr. Huie dead in his Guntersville office Saturday.

A 1930 University of Alabama graduate, he worked for the Birmingham Post and wrote free-lance articles for Time, Look, The Saturday Evening Post, True and The New York Herald Tribune for many years before he began to write books.

Obituary published in The Charlotte Observer on Nov. 24, 1986.
