From WOSU Public Radio, this conversation with Michael Rosen and Sara Thurber Sauers on the occasion of the Columbus, Ohio Thurber exhibit and publication of A Mile And A Half Of Lines: The Art Of James Thurber (Ohio State University Press).
James Thurber’s entry on the Spill‘s A-Z:
James Thurber Born, Columbus, Ohio, December 8, 1894. Died 1961, New York City. New Yorker work: 1927 -1961, with several pieces run posthumously. According to the New Yorker’s legendary editor, William Shawn, “In the early days, a small company of writers, artists, and editors — E.B. White, James Thurber, Peter Arno, and Katharine White among them — did more to make the magazine what it is than can be measured.”
