Biography (wiki)

Dorothy Hyson, Lady Quayle (December 24, 1914 – May 23, 1996) was an American film and stage actress, born Dorothy Wardell Heisen in Chicago, Illinois. She was the daughter of actress Dorothy Dickson and matinée idol Carl Hyson (né Heisen). She led a successful stage career. She worked as a cryptographer during World War II at Bletchley Park.

She was married twice:

She worked at the secret codebreaking establishment Bletchley Park during World War II, and, although married to Robert Douglas, was visited there by her Anthony Quayle, who became her second husband. Quayle recalled that:

She was a byword for theatrical West End glamour and after the war returned to the West End, joining John Gielgud’s Haymarket Company in 1945.

She married Quayle in 1947 after divorcing Douglas, and soon after retired from the stage to concentrate on bringing up their three children.

She was widowed in 1989 and died from a stroke on May 23, 1996, aged 81, in England, a year after the death of her mother, who died at age 102.
