Paul Hammock told stories as he gave a tour of the home of American author and cartoonist James Thurber. The home has been restored for the period when the Thurber family lived there from 1913 to 1917, while the author was in college. Mr. Thurber was one of the most popular and influential humorists of his time. He was best known for his cartoons and short stories, published mainly in The New Yorker magazine.
