Henry Lawson (1867-1922) was born at Grenfell, NSW. With little formal education behind him, Lawson started an apprenticeship in Sydney, where he began to write verse and short stories. His work was extremely well-received and was published often in the Bulletin. Lawson produced a volume of his best short stories - including The Loaded Dog and The Drover's Wife - in 1901. A national figure and strongly identified with Australian values, he died in Sydney and was given a state funeral.
