Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Elinor Bruce Lyon (17 August 1921 - 28 May 2008) was an English children's author. Lyon was born in Guisborough, Yorkshire and educated at Headington School, Oxford. After living for a time in Switzerland, she returned to Oxford to read English at Lady Margaret Hall just as World War II began. She completed four terms, but then joined the WRNS because 'with many...friends being killed, I couldn't stay there reading Milton'. She served two and half years as a radar operator. Elinor was the inspiration for many of poet John Gillespie Magee, Jr.'s poems. John had met Elinor while attending Rugby School, and remained close friends with Elinor and her family until John's death in December of 1941. Her father was headmaster at Rugby School; she met her future husband Peter Wright there when he was a temporary Classics and English teacher. They became engaged in 1943. He returned to teaching when he was demobbed in 1946, and though Lyon's father retired in 1948 they remained there until 1975, when they retired to Harlech. They had four children and now have twelve grandchildren.
