Biography/History"The Patriotic Hen of Hoople. When Governor Lynn J. Frazier of North Dakota went to his home town, Hoople, for a Red Cross benefit, some Nonpartisan contributed a hen. This chicken caught the patriotic excitement of the occasion and laid an egg. The governor, as auctioneer, sold and resold the egg until he realized $371. Then the egg was given to him as a souvenir. He now has it on his executive desk at Bismarck. It is hoped that Mrs. Frazier hard-boiled it. The total receipts for the day were $2, 842. How is that for Nonpartisans? The governor is shown in the picture calling for bids on the freshest egg that ever was sold. The flag bearer is Colonel H.A. Ball. Clerk Olson stands between them." - Article with image in Nonpartisan Leader, May 13, 1918 (V. 6, no. 19).
