Writer William Somerset Maugham was born in Paris on January 25, 1874. He attended St. Thomas's Medical School in London.

A prolific writer, Maugham produced novels, short stories, plays, and an autobiographical novel, "Of Human Bondage." Although he remains popular for his novels and short stories, when he was alive his plays, now dated, were also popular, and in 1908 four of his plays ran simultaneously.
