February meeting of the ATA History team

Next meeting will be on Monday 10 February at the Ashburnham Arms (back room) 7.30 - 9.00pm
It will feature a short talk by Neil Sinclair who is going to kick off Triangle Lives with the journalist, author, playwright and film scriptwriter Edgar Wallace. Wallace was born illegitimately into poverty in Ashburnham Grove in 1875. Despite leaving school at 12, he rose to great acclaim and fortune as a novelist and scriptwriter. Wallace's eventful and colourful life ended far from its beginning in a terraced house in Greenwich. He died in 1932 in Beverley Hills, California while working on the script of Hollywood blockbuster King Kong.
