Interesting Royal Holloway/Bedford Classicist 1

Bedford1
Frances Stevenson (1888-1972), political secretary and a huge influence on David Lloyd George, the famous politician and Prime Minister.
She studied Classics at Clapham High School and Royal Holloway, where she graduated 101 years ago in 1910.
She was a passionate suffragette. She became (very scandalously) Lloyd George’s mistress as well as secretary in 1913.
