Some Facts
Based the character of Captain Hook on a Reverend in East Sussex named John Maher who was later revealed to have been a vicious pirate and had a hook for a hand.
He was awarded Knight Bachelor of the Order of the British Empire in the 1913 King's Honours List for his services to literature. In the 1922 King's Honours List, he was awarded the Order of Merit for his services to literature.
Awarded honorary degrees by the Universities of St Andrews (1898), Edinburgh (1909), Oxford (1926) and Cambridge (1930).
From 1928 onwards, all royalties from the sales of Peter Pan were donated to the Great Ormond Street Hospital. In 1987 (50 years after Barrie's death), when normally royalty rights would have expired, by a special act of Parliament, royalties were allowed to continue going to the hospital in perpetuity.
The son of a weaver, educated in Scotland.
Personal Quotes
[on accomplishment] Every man who is high up loves to think he has done it all himself; and his wife smiles, and lets it go at that.
