Clara Fuller

 Clara Fuller – Following the death of her husband, Wheaton M. Fuller (1908), who had been the editor of the Little Falls Daily Transcript for 27 years, Clara became editor of the paper and president of the Transcript Publishing Company, which her husband had founded. .. What we know Clara for, more so than her role with the Transcript, is for a two-volume set of books called the “History of Morrison and Todd Counties, Minnesota,” which was published in 1915.  These two volumes, one of general histories, the other of local biographies, are indispensable in providing an overall look at the history of Morrison County.

We'd venerate Clara Fuller just for writing pretty accurate history books,
 but look what else she did post-Wheaton:  

Six Suffragists Are Arrested at White House Gates
Washington D.C., Thursday--Six women carrying suffrage colors and banners bearing quotations from President Wilson's speeches and writings were arrested late today in front of one of the White House gates and taken to police headquarters.  It was the first time the women's party had sent banner bearers to the White House since last week, when six of its members were arrested and sent to the district workhouse in default of payment of $25 fines.  Those arrested were Mrs Pauline Adams, Norfolk, Va.; Mrs. Clara Fuller, Little Falls, Minn.; Mrs. Kate Boeckh and Mrs. W. L. Lockwood, Washington, D.C.; Mrs Gertrude Hunter, Minneapolis, Minn.; and Miss Margaret Fotheringham, Buffalo, NY.   They gave bond to appear in the Police Court tomorrow on the charge of obstructing traffic.  It is understood that the women intend to make their fight through the courts on these cases. No appeals were entered for the prisoners now in the workhouse.

Way ta go, Clara, 
and THANKS, Larry ☺
