A.A. Milne's home is on Mallord Street in London, England. The creator of Winnie-The-Pooh lived here from 1919 to 1942. He was born Alan Alexander Milne in Kilburn, London on January 18, 1882. He attended Westminster School and Trinity College, eventually graduating in 1903 with a degree in mathematics. During his school days he wrote for the student magazine Granta, and his work was eventually noticed by the editors of Punch magazine, which he joined in 1906. During World War I he joined the British Army and served from 1915 until his discharge in 1919. Upon his return from military duty he moved to this house on Mallord Street, with his wife, Dorothy de Selincourt, whom he married in 1913. It was here on August 21, 1920 that his son, Christopher Robin, was born. During this time Milne was busy writing novels, poems, plays and screenplays, but his greatest fame would occur after publishing several works based on stories he created for his young son. When We Were Young was published in 1924, followed by Winnie-The-Pooh in 1926, Now We Are Six in 1927, and The House On Pooh Corner in 1928. The success of these collections would surpass anything he had written before, or would come to write. Pooh would prove to be a thorn in the side to Milne, who wanted to write stories in a variety of styles and genres, yet would always be remembered as a children's book author. Christopher Robin also felt resentment towards the Pooh stories and his father for having robbed him of an ordinary childhood and they would later become estranged. Milne left Mallord Street in 1942 to move permanently to Cotchford Farm, his estate in East Sussex, where the nearby Ashdown Forest was the inspiration for the Hundred Acre Wood in his stories. The Pooh books were written there during summers in the 1920's. Milne died at Cotchford in 1956.
