John Dancy (3)

I have now been alerted to the existence of an existing long and detailed obituary of Dancy already published by the Daily Telegraph, which rightly pays tribute to his role as a pioneer of co-education. I am only perplexed by his comment that some of the girls were ‘matronly’. It was obvious to his pupils, at least this one, that in picking the first fifteen, he had a good eye for the most glamorous and sophisticated, not characteristics that I think of as matronly.
