Short biography
Dorothy Strachey Bussy was one of 10 children of Lt.-Gen. Sir Richard Strachey, an officer in the British colonial armies and his wife Jane Grant, a leader in the women's suffrage movement. She was educated at Marie Souvestre's school for girls in Fontainebleau, France, and later in Allenswood Academy, near London. She became a teacher at Allenswood, where one of her students was the young Eleanor Roosevelt, on whom she had a strong influence. In 1903, Dorothy married Simon Bussy, a French painter five years her junior.
