As we make room for batteries in the vegetable drawer, we might recall that it was on this date in 1901 that William Sidney Porter was released from a federal prison after doing time for embezzling money from a Texas bank.  Porter had supplemented his income as a bank clerk with writing; and during his stay as federal prisoner 30664 at the Ohio Penitentiary in Columbus, Ohio, he  published fourteen stories under various pseudonyms.  The pen name that stuck was “O. Henry,” which first appeared over the story “Whistling Dick’s Christmas Stocking” in the December 1899 issue of McClure’s Magazine.  On gaining his freedom, Porter moved to New York to be closer to his publishers– and the career of “O. Henry” took off.
