Margaret Landon
Birth: Sep. 7, 1903
Death: Dec. 4, 1993

Author. Born in Somers, Wisconsin, Margaret and her husband Kenneth moved to Thailand in 1924, where she served as Headmistress of the Anakul Satri Girls' School. During her stay in Thailand, Margaret completed the research to write the novel that made her famous "Anna and the King of Siam," the story of Anna Leonowens, a governess in the court of King Mongkut. Margaret Landon's work was adapted to the cinema by 20th Century Fox in 1946, under the novel title, starring Rex Harrison and Irene Dunne and later, the story became the basis for "The King and I," a musical by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. Landon also wrote "Never Dies the Dream" and several articles about Anna Leonowens. She died three months after her husband, and was buried with him. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
