Lady Constance Stewart-Richardson

Lady Constance Stewart-Richardson (1883-1932), British dancer and author, society figure, dancer and promoter of the healthy benefits of exercise. Pictured at the time she was appearing as a professional dancer for the first time in London with a stint at the Palace Theatre leaving the theatre after one of her performances. The novelty of an aristocrat taking to the stage to perform artistic dances made Constance a subject of much interest among the illustrated magazines of the time. The Tatler informed readers that Lady Constance's object in going on the stage was to raise funds to found a school for boys where her special theory of education would be carried out. Date: 1910

Letter from Lt. Colonel Richardson, dog trainer

Letter from the renowned dog trainers Lt. Colonel Edwin Hautenville Richardson to the Royal Society of Arts, confirming that he would give a lecture for them on the subject of dogs in peace and war. He also makes suggestions about other talks he gave. Richardson was well known for providing guard, sentry and police dogs and lobbied for dogs to be used more widely at the front during the First World War in line with other countries. Eventually, he was asked to set up the British War Dog School at Shoeburyness (later it moved to Lyndhurst in the New Forest) where hundreds of dogs were trained to act as ambulance, sentry and, in particular, messenger dogs with great success. Date: 1924
