About the Narrators

O. Henry (1862–1910), born William Sydney Porter in Greensboro, North Carolina, was a short-story writer whose tales romanticized the commonplace, in particular, the lives of ordinary people in New York City. His stories often had surprise endings, a device that became identified with his name. He began writing sketches around 1887, and his stories of adventure in the Southwest United States and in Central America were immediately popular with magazine readers.

Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919) was the twenty-sixth president of the United States. He is noted for his exuberant personality, range of interests and achievements, leadership of the Progressive movement, and “cowboy” image. He was a leader of the Republican Party and founder of the short-lived Progressive Party of 1912. Before becoming president, he held offices at the municipal, state, and federal level of government. Roosevelt’s achievements as a naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, and soldier are as much a part of his fame as any office he held as a politician.
