Biography

Dorothy GREENHOUGH-SMITH

Dorothy Greenhough-Smith was the daughter of J. E. Preston Muddock, a detective story writer whose popularity briefly rivaled that of Sherlock Holmes. At seventeen she married Herbert Greenhough-Smith, twenty-eight years her elder, and editor of “The Strand” magazine where the Sherlock Holmes stories were originally published.

She became British champion in 1908 when, with Madge Syers absent, she defeated competitors of both sexes at Prince’s Skating Rink. Greenhough-Smith repeated this feat in 1911 and placed second in the 1912 Ladies World Championships, the only time she competed for the world title. She retired from skating prior to the birth of her only child, a son who died in infancy. In addition to her skating prowess she was also an accomplished tennis player and played in the ladies singles event at Wimbledon.
