Brief Biography of Hugh Lofting:
Hugh John Lofting (January 14, 1886 - September 26, 1947) was a British author, trained as a civil engineer, who created the character of Doctor Dolittle -- one of the classics of children's literature. The sequel The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle (1922) won Lofting the prestigious Newbery Medal. Eight more followed, and after his death two more volumes, composed of short unpublished pieces, appeared. The Doctor Dolittle series has been adapted for film and television many times, for stage twice, and for radio.
After serving in World War I, in which he was seriously wounded, he and his family moved to Connecticut in the U.S.A. He was married three times, and his son, Christopher, is the executor of his literary estate.
Lofting died in Topanga, California on September 26, 1947.
