O. Henry

An older woman volunteer asked me where I would file an O. Henry book.  I said in the Fiction, under Henry.  She said, "really?  When I was going to school it would have been filed under the Os like he was Irish, O'Henry." I first googled it to make sure, then said no, the "O could stand for Oliver, Orville, Owen, it's an O name, not part of the last name."  She said "well it sure used to be O'Henry.  My how things change when you get old.  I must really be getting old!"
