The Nobody of the School / The Veiled Lady


Victorian girl Dorothy Lambert has been taken in by her Uncle Ezra, who treats her like a poor relation. Now Dorothy is considered old enough to earn her own living, so Uncle Ezra packs her off to a boarding school where she is to earn her keep as a pupil-governess (earn her board and tuition by teaching and domestic duties, and get no wages). She is considered low by school staff and treated as such. But Uncle Ezra has told Dorothy that if she does not profit from her position, she will receive no more of his (cold) charity. On a stranger note, the school is said to be haunted by a ghost known as The Veiled Lady.

  1. Did M&J reprint the story under its original title?

    Frankly, if I were Dorothy I would look for a job of my own pretty fast, get out of that school, and tell Uncle Ezra to go stick his so-called charity in his ear! Then again, we got to see where the Veiled Lady comes in.

  2. ‘The Nobody Of The School’ : JUDY 1167 (May 22 1982) – 1177 (July 31 1982)
    ‘The Veiled Lady’ : JUDY 1468 (February 27 1988) – 1478 (May 7 1988)

    The M&J repeat as a JUDY CLASSIC was as ‘The Nobody Of The School’.
