British writer who called himself "a Sunday writer" as he worked for the Bank of England for his vocation from 1879. Orphaned early, he was raised by his grandmom and educated at St. Edward's before becoming a clerk in the bank. He rose rapidly to bank secretary in 1898, a position he kept until his health broke down in 1907, forcing his retirement in 1908. In 1903, a man robbed the bank at gunpoint, threatening Grahame's life.
Married to Elspeth Thomson in 1899, Grahame had one son the following year, Alastair, who was killed in a train accident at age 20.
He published three books, the first in 1893, "Pagan Papers." He was remembered most fondly for "The Wind in the Willows," written for his son and published in 1908. He also wrote "the Golden Age," a volume of essays and a posthumous collection.
