James Thurber house Picture 26 of 28
One of the outstanding American humorists of the twentieth century, James Thurber was born and educated in Columbus. He launched his writing career as a reporter for The Columbus Dispatch in 1920. In 1927 he began writing for The New Yorker, where the first of his distinctively spare cartoons appeared in 1930. He and his family lived at 77 Jefferson Avenue from 1913 to 1917; the house became a literary center and museum in 1984. Thurber is buried in Columbus' Green Lawn Cemetery.
