Transcript of O. Milne

Milne, the youngest of the family's three sons, went to Westminster School at the age of 11 and then went on to Cambridge to become a mathematician. But he never did. Instead he became editor of the university's journal “Granta" in which he published some of his light humorous poems.
Then he went to London hoping to earn his living as a writer. By and by London magazines began to publish his witty works. In 1913 he married Dorothy De Selincourt. The Milnes' only child was born on August 21st, 1920. They called him Christopher Robin. The Milnes bought him a teddy bear for his first birthday. The teddy bear was soon named Winnie, after a real-life bear that lived at London Zoo.
Alan Alexander Milne was born in London on Januare 18th, 1882. His father was the headmaster of a small preperatory school. One of the teachers at the school was the famouse writer H.G. Welles.
In 1925 the Milnes bought a farm in Sussex, which they used for weekends away from London. From this old house it was a short walk over a bridge into the Ashdown Forest where Christopher Robin and his teddy, now known by the name of "Winnie-the-Pooh" or "Pooh-bear", used to play. Each daily adventure in the Forest gave A. A. Milne more material for his now famous book "Winnie-the-Pooh" published in 1926.
