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.

Michael Llewelyn Davies (16 June 1900 – 19 May 1921) was – along with his four brothers – the inspiration for J. M. Barrie's characters Peter Pan, the Darling brothers, and the Lost Boys. Late in life, his only surviving brother Nico described him as "the cleverest of us, the most original, the potential genius."
