William Sydney Porter grew up in the house of his grandmother and
attended a school run by his aunt, where he developed his love of
books. He began his career early on as a draftsman and cartoonist. It
is believed he created the illustrations in the 1889 book "Indian
Depredations in Texas" by J. W. Wilbarger.
Porter began a short-lived publication called Rolling Stone, and
contributed stories to McCClures magazine. For health reasons he
moved to Texas and spent time working on a ranch, an experience that
provided him with many ideas for writing. An unfortunate series of
events during his brief turn as a bank teller in Austin landed him in
the penitentiary for five years. He passed the time in prison
writing, and emerged years later to begin a brilliant career, doing
his most famous work.
Today William Sydney Porter is better known as O. Henry, writer of
many memorable books and short stories such as "The Ransom of Red
Chief," "The Gift of the Magi," and "Cabbages and Kings."
