Norman George Wymer                         1911-1982
Norman was born on 28 June 1911, the son of George Petre Leslie Wymer and Margaret Grogan.
He was educated at Boxgrove and Charterhouse, and became a journalist who later became a full time author. Early books published soon after the war were mainly about the English countryside, arts and crafts. He later turned to biographies (Dr. Arnold of Rugby and Dr Barnardo). Also wrote The Man From The Cape, the story of Ewart Grogan's trek north across the length of Africa from Capetown. He later wrote educational biographies for Oxford University Press, and 'English as a Foreign Language' readers for Longman. After his marriage to Jean Kinloch, in 1934, they lived initially in Worthing, Sussex, where their two sons were born. They remained in Sussex in four different homes until Norman died of a heart attack in 1982 aged 71, and Jean on March 26th 1993 aged 85.
