He received his M.A. from the University of Edinburgh, and worked as a journalist and drama critic before he gained celebrity for his fiction. He served as Rector of the University of St Andrews, during which he presented this acclaimed address, "Courage." Afterward, he was appointed Chancellor of his alma mater. Barrie bequeathed the rights of his Peter Pan works to the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London, which receives revenue from them to this day.
