Nobel-Prize-winning writer William Faulkner was born into an old Southern family in 1897 and grew up in Oxford, Mississippi. He never finished high school. Faulkner joined the British Royal Air Force during World War 1, changing the spelling of his surname from Falkner to Faulkner. After the war, he studied at the University of Mississippi, and held a variety of jobs from bookstore clerk to reporter. Faulkner's main efforts, however, focused on writing stories and novels. After publishing several books including The Sound and The Fury and Light in August, Faulkner took up screenwriting as a way of earning money. He traveled to Hollywood intermittently to fulfill his obligations, but kept his home in Mississippi. One of the most important American writers and strongly associated with the South, Faulkner earned several National Book Awards and two Pulitzer Prizes in addition to the Nobel Prize for Literature (1949). He died in 1962.
