James Barrie

Biography

Scottish writer, novelist and playwright who worked as a journalist before his sketches and stories became popular. He is famous for his "Peter Pan," which was first presented on stage in 1904.

The son of a weaver, he studied at Edinburgh University and settled in London as a free-lance writer in 1885. His collection of Scottish sketches caught public attention in 1889 and his first novel, "The Little Minister," was released in 1891. From that point on Barrie produced a stream of popular plays.

In 1913, Barrie was knighted; he received an Order of Merit in 1922; was rector of St. Andrews University 1919-1922 and became chancellor of Edinburgh University from 1930. He married actress Mary Ansell in 1894 and they divorced in 1910. Reference works state that his marriage was never consummated.

Died on 6/19/1937, London.
