Banjo Paterson *

a.k.a. Andrew Barton Paterson

Author Code: OBJP

Born: Feb. 17, 1864 - Orange, New South Wales, Australia

Died: Feb. 5, 1941 - Sydney, Australia

Growing up in a rural setting in Australia, his works would later reflect this background. Educated at home by a governess, then at Sydney Grammar School, Paterson began his career as a law clerk and was later admitted to the bar in 1886. He used the pseudonym 'The Banjo' in some of his early contributions to the Bulletin and the name was permanently used by him. In 1895, he published The Man From Snowy River and Other Verses and became a literary celebrity. Later that year, while on holiday in Queensland he wrote Waltzing Matilda. During the Boer War, he acted as a war correspondent for both the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, and later covered the Boxer Rebellion in China. He then became the editor of the Sydney Evening News from 1904 to 1906 and the Town and Country Journal from 1907 to 1908. During the First World War he served as an ambulance driver in France, but, dissatisfied with his inability to get to the front, returned to Australia and enlisted in the Remount Service, which provided horses for the Australian cavalry. He finally saw action in France and was wounded in 1916. He returned to Australia in 1919 and settled in Sydney, and became Australia's favourite son. He was a prolific author and adventurer. His works include Rio Grande's Last Race and Other Verses (1895), Old Bush Songs (1905), An Outback Marriage (1906), Saltbush Bill J. P. and Other Verses (1917), Three Elephant Power and Other Stories (1917), Collected Verse (1923), The Animals Noah Forgot (1933), Happy Dispatches (1934) and The Shearer's Colt (1936).
