  1. Chris Steller Says:

    Thanks for picking Fridley’s namesake!

    One tweak: The size of the image can’t really be 4 1/4′ height by 3 1/4′ width, as listed at http://collections.mnhs.org/cms/display.php?irn=10061838 (Double quote marks for inches?)

    Also I’m wondering about Abram vs. Abraham … assuming it’s the same guy.

    Lori Williamson reply on December 19th, 2012:

    Thanks for the tweak! You’re right, it’s not quite that large as that(can you imagine?). We are fixing it now.
    The Legislative Reference Library lists him as Abram, so we’re going with that.
    Thanks again for your help, we appreciate it!
    Best, Lori
