Barrie, James M.Barrie, James M.

James M. BarrieBorn in Forfarshire, Scotland on 9th May 1860, James M. Barrie was a playwright and novelist, now best known for his children's classic Peter Pan. He moved to London and published his first novel in 1887, rapidly followed by more. His own life was touched by tragedy, with a failed marriage and the loss of several loved ones, but he was thought to have a special gift with children who he wove tales for. He died on 19th June 1937, and is buried in London. In his will he granted Great Ormond Street Hospital, the children's hospital in London, all rights to Peter Pan. The grant was confirmed, and made 'in perpetuity' by the UK Parliament.
