Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dorothy Hayden Truscott (November 3, 1925 - July 4, 2006) was the top-ranked woman in bridge for many years and authored or co-authored books on the game. Mrs. Truscott was born Dorothy Johnson in New York City. She graduated from Smith College and briefly taught mathematics in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Her first two marriages ended in divorce. In 1972 she married Alan Truscott, who wrote a column on bridge for The New York Times. Her parents, Dorothy and Reginald Johnson, were keen bridge players and taught their daughter the game when she was 7 years old. Mrs. Truscott would normally watch her mother play the game, but her father would allow her to bid and play his hand when he poured drinks. One evening a player was late, and she was allowed to fill in. That introduction made her a "bridge addict" for the remainder of her life.
