|St John's House, Berkhamsted School|
Graham Greene, (1904-1991), the writer, playwright and literary critic, was born in this house at Berkhamsted school. At the time his father was a teacher at the school, but later became headmaster. When Graham became thirteen he returned to St John's house as a boarder, living in a part of the building he had not known as a child. He describes the horrors of the area reserved for the pupils in his biography A Sort of Life.
