Nellie Griswold Francis (1874-1969) was a suffragist and civil rights activist. Read Leeta M. Douglas’ article Nellie Griswold Francis, the Women of Rondo, and Their Suffrage Crusade in this summer’s issue of the Ramsey County History.

Nellie and her husband William Francis are featured in my drawing of Rondo – Dale to Western, on display at the Minnesota State Fair Fine Art Exhibition from August 27 to September 7, 2020.
