Khalil Gibran

Gibran Khalil Gibran (born January 6 1883 in Bsharri, Lebanon, died April 10 1931 in New York City) was a Lebanese poet and artist. He emigrated to Boston, USA in 1895 with his mother, sisters and half-brother. The spelling "Kahlil Gibran" is the result of an error when he first entered school in Boston. He studied art in Boston and French and Arabic in Lebanon. He was a Maronite.

In his early teens, Gibran was a protege of Boston photographer and publisher F. Holland Day.
