That's a wonderful story! And told with his characteristic flair. Don't wait too long to read his books on the OED. You'll enjoy them. But also take a look at that other book I mentioned: The Man Who Loved China. It's about a Cambridge scientist who--with his wife's permission--takes a Chinese mistress and becomes anamoured with all things Chinese. He writes a multi-volume tome about Chinese inventions. Joseph Needham. It's my favorite Simon Winchester book.

I'm going to make the call that it's C.R. Milne.

Young Milne with bear.


The real stuffed toys owned by Christopher Robin Milne and featured in the Winnie-the-Pooh stories. They were on display in the Donnell Library Center in New York City since the 1980s. According to the New York Public Library's web site "They have recently moved from their previous home in the Central Children's Room to grand new quarters in the History and Social Science Library at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street and will be on display in the Children’s Room beginning in early 2009."


Christopher Robin Milne in later years.

Your turn I think, Pinz.

"I enclose picture of myself when I was perhaps five years old. At that time, that angry face was just for fun, but now I think of it as the secret truth... I probably wasn't really five in this photograph more like Two-but you, as someone who likes children, would be a better judge of that than I. When there are children around I prefer to keep my eyes shut."
