Significant Scots
A J Cronin


Archibald Joseph Cronin (1896-1981). Scottish novelist, an accomplished storyteller, who practiced as a doctor over a decade before devoting himself entirely to writing. Cronin gained first fame with Hatter's Castle (1931), the story of the megalomanic James Brodie, a Scottish hatmaker and his foolish dreams of social acceptance. Cronin produced several bestsellers drawing from his experiences as a a doctor - his most famous character was Dr Finlay Hyslop. Some of his works had religious themes, like The Keys of the Kingdom (1942), which was also made into a film, starring Gregory Peck. Cronin continued to write until he was in his eightieth year.
