James Naismith was born on November 6, 1861 in Ontario, Canada. When he was just nine, Naismith was put into an orphanage (US Embassy 1). Just thirty years after Naismith was born, he was accredited with the invention of basketball. In a journal, he wrote simple rules of the game. The basketball program he started at the University of Kansas followed the original 13 rules. He then died November 28, 1939 in Lawrence, Kansas.
