Name: Susanna Bruff (1915-2001)
Fuller Form: Susanna Jane Alexander Bruff


Historical Note: Susanna Bruff was born in Holtville, Imperial County, California, the first child of a struggling farmer and his wife. Her father was trying to grow lettuce but in the absence of adequate transportation it was impossible to get his produce reliably to the markets in Los Angeles and San Diego. About 1925, the farm was bankrupt and the family moved in with Susanna's mother's mother, who lived in Santa Ana, California. Susanna graduated in English from Scripps College in Pomona and married a college Professor, Stephen Cartland Bruff. Susanna and Stephen had three children, Barbara, Dana, and Stephen. Susanna passed away in 2001.
