“Become a fur farmer without giving a minute of your time to the business,” states this broadside from National Forest Fur Farms Inc. of Deer River, Minnesota. Promoting stock in muskrat farming, this advertisement is likely from the 1920’s when “get rich quick” investments like this one were commonplace. F.W. Williams, the President and Managing Director of the company, owned a ranch near Cut Foot Sioux Lake that also dealt in elk, buffalo, deer, bear, fox, lynx, beaver, fisher, mink, skunk, marmot, monkeys, squirrels and mountain lions. A part of the lake known as “Williams Narrows” was named after him, along with the “Williams Narrows Lodge,” the road that leads to the lodge, and the self-proclaimed “Williams Strain” of extra large dark northern muskrats.
