James M Barrie, author of Peter Pan

Sir James "J.M." Matthew Barrie, author of Peter Pan, around 1910.

"Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up" is his most enduring book, but he wrote many other popular books. Wendy, the human girl in Peter Pan, wasn't a popular name before he created the character - it became (and remains) popular after.

The 9th of 10 children born to a Scots family, James Barrie wasn't born to wealth or education but he achieved both - and more.
