a.k.a. James Grover Thurber

Author Code: AJTH

Born: Dec. 8, 1894 - Columbus, Ohio, USA

Died: Nov. 2, 1961 - New York City, New York, USA

Partially blinded by a childhood accident, Thurber avoided military service in the First World War and instead studied at Ohio State University. He then worked for the US Embassy in Paris and for a number of newspapers while in Paris, including the Chicago Tribune. He returned to the US in 1926 and settled in New York City where he worked for the Evening Post before joining the newly established New Yorker. Thurber was an accomplished cartoonist and, in 1929, he collaborated with E.B. White in publishing Is Sex Necessary?. Thurber left the magazine in 1933, although continuing to contribute articles to it well into the 1950's, and concentrated on publishing his works. His eyesight continued to decline and, by the 1950's, he was almost totally blind. Honored by a number of Universities, Thurber was highly regarded and respected both as an author and as an artist. His many works include The Owl in the Attic and Other Perplexities (1931), My Life and Hard Times (1933), Let Your Mind Alone! (1937), The Last Flower (1939), Fables For Our Time (1940), My World - And Welcome to It (1942 - and which included the story, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), Men, Women, And Dogs (1943), The Beast in Me and Other Animals (1948), The 13 Clocks (1950), Thurber Country (1953), The Wonderful O (1957) and Lanterns and Lances (1961).
