Hilton, James: The Story of Dr. Wassell. V1. 10 Sep 2012
Hilton wrote his two most famous books, Lost Horizon and Goodbye, Mr Chips while living in a rather ordinary Semi-detached house on Oak Hill Gardens, Woodford Green. The house still stands, with a blue plaque marking Hilton's residence.
He was married and divorced twice, first to Alice Brown and later to Galina Kopineck. He died in Long Beach, California from liver cancer on December 20, 1954, aged 54.
Hilton's only non-fiction work.
On May 26, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt's "fireside chat" radio program. FDR's subject that night was a man named Corydon Wassell, an Arkansas doctor and Naval officer who had recently performed a heroic wartime act on the Pacific island of Java.
