Bernard Darwin (1876-1961) was a grandson of Charles Darwin. He was a lawyer by training but not by inclination and moved into journalism, becoming a leading writer on golf, a game which he played well as an amateur. In 1906 he married Irish born artist, Elinor Mary Monsell (1879-1954) and found time to write a number of children's books that she ably illustrated. Item #9850
