Ronald Searle

Ronald Searle was born in Cambridge in 1920. He served in the Second World War and was one of the few British prisoners-of-war to survive Changi prison and forced labor on the Burma Railway. He delighted millions with his comic creation St. Trinians, and has been a distinguished contributor to numerous magazines around the world, from The New Yorker to Le Monde.
