A. A. Milne

A. A. Milne (1882–1956) was born in London in 1882. He was educated at Westminster School and studied mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge. He was a regular contributor to Punch, and later assistant editor, before the interruption of active service in the First World War. A remarkably versatile writer, Milne went on to become a hugely successful and widely known playwright, both in the West End and on Broadway, as well as an essayist, poet, novelist and—most famously—children’s author, as the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh. He died in 1956 following a long illness.
