Albert Camus
Albert Camus was born the son of a working-class family in Algeria in 1913. The early years of his life were spent working various jobs in North Africa. There, Camus worked in the weather bureau, in an automoblie-accessory firm and in a shipping company to help pay for courses at the University of Algiers.
He then turned to journalism where he gained public notice while rousing the Algerian government with his report on the sad state of the Muslims of the Kabylie region.
Camus ran the Théâtre de l´Equipe from 1935 to 1938, producing plays by Malraux, Gide, Syng and Dostoevski.
The editor of Combat - an underground newpaper - during World War II, Camus was also one of the leading writers of the French Resistance.
In 1957, Camus was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
On January 4, 1960, Albert Camus' life was cut short in an automobile accident, ending the career of one of the most important literary figures of the Western world at the height or his skills.
