Happy Birthday!

Andrew Barton "Banjo" Paterson

was born at Narambla, in New South Wales,

17 February 1864
(d. 5 Feb 1941)

He became a lawyer but devoted his time to journalism and writing, especially poetry and ballads. He's best known for "The Man from Snowy River" (1892) and some minor songs.

His choice of pseudonym came from his abiding preoccupation -- "The Banjo" was a race-horse.

Had a nice write-up in National Geographic a few months ago.
