July 20, 1893: Born, George Llewelyn Davies. George was just 10 years old when his friend (and later guardian) J. M. Barrie began writing "Peter Pan" and he and his four younger brothers were models and inspiration for the work. In fact, it was George who originally uttered one of Peter's most memorable lines, "To die will be an awfully big adventure." Davies died in action in World War I at the age of 21.

George Llewelyn Davies and his brothers were the inspiration for Peter Pan and the Lost Boys. It is said JM Barrie based Peter on him, and named George Darling after him.
