The author: Susan Charlotte Buchan, Baroness Tweedsmuir (née Grosvenor; 20 April 1882 – 22 March 1977) was a British writer and the wife of author John Buchan. Between 1935 and 1940 she was the viceregal consort of Canada while her husband was the governor-general. She was also the author of several novels, children's books, and biographies, some of which were published under the name Susan Tweedsmuir. She was a childhood friend of Virginia Stephen (later Virginia Woolf), and they remained friendly, although not always close, in adult life. The Hogarth Press, run by Leonard and Virginia Woolf, published a work of Lady Tweedsmuir's in 1935 and she was the recipient of one of the last letters Virginia Woolf ever wrote.
