A born Virginian, Betsy Dillard Stroud began painting with a private tutor at the age of eight, when an insightful uncle gave her a set of oil paints. She has a B. A. in art from Radford University and an M. A. in art history from the University of Virginia, where she was the first woman in the graduate Arts program. She was also the first woman in the doctoral program. She completed all course work and her orals (field examination) for her doctorate, when her uncle, Colonel Herbert Nash Dillard died while teaching class at the Virginia Military Institute.

After her uncle's death, Stroud devoted the next few years to writing a memoir about him, and the publication of this book changed her life.
