About Archibald Cronin

Archibald Cronin

ARCHIBALD A J CRONIN d1981. Scottish physician and novelist. His best-known novel is The Citadel (1937) about a Scottish doctor who serves in a Welsh mining village before achieving success in London, where he becomes disillusioned about the venality and incompetence of some doctors. He knew both areas, as a medical inspector of mines and as a doctor in Harley Street. The book exposed unfairness and malpractice in British medicine and helped to inspire the National Health Service. The Stars Look Down set in the North East of England is another of his best-selling novels inspired by his work among miners. Both novels have been filmed ; as have Hatter's Castle / The Keys of the Kingdom and The Green Years. His 1935 novell "Country Doctor" inspired a long-running BBC radio and TV series, Dr. Finlay's Casebook (1962–1971). He died in Switzerland aged 84 on January 6th 1981
