A Case for O. Henry

Record #:
William Sydney Porter, known as O. Henry, was born in Greensboro in 1862. Most of his stories were set in the south, and a recurrent theme in his tales was the old south versus the new south. Full of humor, satire, and stereotypes, several of O. Henry's stories are autobiographical and set in the Catskills. O. Henry died in 1910 and is buried in Riverside Cemetery in Asheville, not far from Thomas Wolfe.
