Portrait by Stephen Bone
Hugh Walpole was born on March 13th. 1884 in Aucland, New Zealand; raised in England and educated at two prestigious universities. A dean of English letters who could make or break literary careers. Walpole was himself an author and knighted in 1938.

"The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a glowing depth, beauty, and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing, it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of Divine accident."
