"Tennis Mother Dead. Mrs Matilda Brooks Dudley, mother of Miss Elizabeth Ryan, American lawn tennis star, died at Leicester last night after a short illness aged 80. Although she made it a rule never to interfere with her affairs, Mrs Dudley who had twice married always accompanied Miss Ryan on tennis tours. At the outbreak of war Mrs Dudley, who had settled in England, moved to Leicester to be near her other daughter, Mrs Stanley Partridge, who as Miss Alice Ryan played in many tournaments with her sister. Miss Elizabeth Ryan, a native of California, has gained many honours in lawn tennis being particularly successful in doubles." -- Herald Express (Torquay, Devon, England), 29 Aug 1940
