DSL has just been informed that Diana Spencer Russell died on Thursday 21st January.
Diana was the much-loved Administrator at DSL from 1979 - 1982.
She joined the school after spending the previous seven years as PA to Trevor Nunn at the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Trevor Nunn recalls with great affection Diana’s patience and invaluable support when she was his assistant at the RSC, working tirelessly between the busy offices of Stratford and London.
She demonstrated a similar dedication to DSL, working for the organisation in America as well as at its base in Ealing.
On retirement Diana moved to Shropshire, but kept in touch with many past students who held her in great affection.
If you have any special memories of Diana please contact us so we can share them.
