Scottish physician and author. Noted during the 1930s and 1940s for his novels that attracted a huge readership and combined realism, romance, social criticism and melodrama. After being forced to give up his job as a doctor because of poor health, Cronin began writing. His many books include, "Hatter's Castle" (1931), "The Stars Look Down" (1935), "The Citadel" (1937), "The Keys Of The Kingdom" (1942) and his autobiography, "Adventures In Two Worlds" (1952). Many of his books were made into films. In 1952 he drew on his experience as a doctor to create the radio and television series' "Dr. Finley's Casebook."
