From her bio on the jacket of her book "Wuzzy and the Captain" published in 1986:

"Born in San Jose, California, Allis Fountain Hussey traveled as much in her early childhood as Wuzzy. In high school she alternated attendance in an Argentinian school with one in Ann Arbor, following her father, an astronomer. She received her BS and MS in Forestry from the University of Michigan, her Certificate of French studies from the University of Grenoble, France, her MA in French from Columbia University and her Certificate of Spanish studies from the University of Madrid. For 16 years she taught French: two years at St. Mary's Junior College in Raleigh, North Carolina, and 14 years at Itasca Junior College in Coleraine, MN. In June 1943 she enlisted in the U.S. Army and retired twenty years later as a major. Miss Hussey has been a participant in numerous organizations and community services and has published poems and stories in the Monterey Peninsula Herald and the Monterey Peninsula Poetry Shell, receiving prizes for her poetry."

Allis lived in a retirement home in Pacific Grove, California until her passing in June of 1988.
