William Sydney Porter in his colorful lifetime became a licensed pharmacist. He would also become a bank teller, a bookkeeper, a clerk, an illustrator, a draftsman in the General Land Office, a newspaperman, an editor, a reporter, a columnist, and a cartoonist. He also learned to break a stubborn bronco, lasso cattle, and shear sheep, and he could rope and ride and shoot a gun. "Will," as his family and neighbors called him, was also a writer. In a lifetime often marred by tragic events, he became a voice for the ordinary people, writing hundreds of stories that brought him great renown. We have come to know him by his pen name as simply O. Henry.
