Violet Hilda Drummond (30 July 1911 - 7 February 2000), a descendant of the banking Drummonds, won the Kate Greenaway Medal for her illustrations to
Mrs Easter and the Stalks
in 1957. Violet was born in London in 1911. When the First World War began her father rejoined his regiment, the Scots Guards, and was killed in Ypres in 1914. Soon after the war she went with her mother and two sisters to live in a tall house in a London square. After her governess left, she went to a small private boarding school in Eastbourne and later to a finishing school in Paris, Le Chateau Vitry-sur-Seine. She was presented at court to Queen Mary. She lived in India and studied briefly at St Martin's School of Art. She started to write children's books after marrying, when she returned to live in London. Later she wrote 'I got tired of writing children's books so I took up painting watercolour pictures of London street scenes' which she exhibited in a London gallery. She died in 2000.
