News: Spencer – W.C.T.U. in 1909


Surnames: Willard Follette, Fromm

Source: Spencer Centennial Book (1874 – 1974)

The Spencer W.C.T.U., while not in its heyday in 1909, was still to be heard from. A few years previous they had placed in the Upper Grade Room of the school a large framed picture of Francis D. Willard, noted educator and champion of Women’s Rights, and President of the National W.C.T.U. The new school principal, being a lover of the great outdoors, placed a picture of a beautiful country scene within the fram and over the likeness of Mrs. Willard. Thereupon Mrs. Follette, President of the local W.C.T.U., went to the school board to protest, and her dialogue was so lengthy and emphatic that they were glad to tell Principal. H. From to remove his picture.
