AUTHOR BORN ON THIS DAY IN 1850


Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson
(November 13, 1850 – December 3, 1894)

Scottish born author Robert Louis Stevenson wrote the classic adventure
novel Treasure Island, and the psychological thriller The Strange Case of
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
He was a late reader, starting at about age seven
or eight, but he wrote incessantly as a child, even to the discouragement
of his father. He agreed to study law at Edinburgh University to appease
his father, but he continued to pursue a literary career during his young
adulthood.
