About Author

Hugh Walpole

English writer Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole, lived from 13 March 1884 to 1 June 1941. Following the publication of The Wooden Horse in 1909, Walpole wrote a lot, finishing at least one book year. The eldest of the Rev. Somerset Walpole's three children, Walpole was born in Auckland, New Zealand. Mildred Helen, née Barham, was his wife (1854-1925). His first piece was published in 1905; he began studying history at Emmanuel College in Cambridge in 1903. He accepted a position as a lay missioner with the Mersey Mission to Seamen in Liverpool upon his graduation from Cambridge in 1906. He obtained employment in 1908 as a French instructor at Epsom College and a book critic for The Standard. Walpole was a passionate music fan, so when he heard a new tenor at the Proms in 1920, he was quite moved and went in search of him. Lauritz Melchior became one of his closest friends, and Walpole contributed significantly to the singer's burgeoning career. Diabetes was detrimental to his health. In May 1941, after participating in a protracted march and giving a speech at the start of Keswick's fundraising "War Weapons Week," he overexerted himself and passed away at Brackenburn from a heart attack at the age of 57. He is interred at Keswick's St. John's graveyard.
