    (October 15, 1881-February 14, 1975)
    Birth name was Pelham Grenville Wodehouse
    Wrote 'Psmith, Journalist (1912),' 'The Man with Two Left Feet (1917),' 'The Inimitable Jeeves (1923),' 'Carry On Jeeves (1924),' 'Anything Goes' (co-writer, 1934), 'Right Ho, Jeeves (1934),' 'Thank You, Jeeves (1934),' 'Blandings Castle and Elsewhere (1935),' 'Young Men in Spats (1936),' 'The Code of the Woosters (1937),' 'Eggs, Beans and Crumpets (1940),' 'Joy in the Morning (1947)' and 'Very Good Jeeves (1971)'
    His nickname was 'Plum' because his head looked like one.
    He reused the same jokes over and over and over again, leading some to call him 'literature's performing flea.'
    As a P.O.W. in Berlin in World War II, he made lighthearted radio broadcasts from his cell causing the British public to believe he was a Nazi sympathizer.
    A. A. Milne, the author of 'Winnie the Pooh,' despised him.
    He was not a Nazi sympathizer.
    George Orwell defended him against his attackers.
    After WW II, the British turned their backs on him, so he resettled in the United States.
    He was married to the same woman his entire adult life.
    His books make fun of stupid British aristocrats and the class system.
