Biographical Sketch

Frances Margaret Cox Wold was born to Leonard and Faye Lesley Cox on October 2, 1915 in Bismarck, North Dakota. The Wolds had another daughter, Ruth and a son, Winston. The family lived in Benedict, Fort Clark and Sanger, ND. Frances attended Garrison High School and graduated from Bismarck High School in 1933. She passed her state teacher examinations in 1934 and from 1934 to 1938 was a rural school teacher in Sheridan and Oliver counties. She married Joseph Wold on November 2, 1938 in Bismarck and they raised three children: Janet, Meryl, and Clark.

Frances no longer taught school after she married, however, in the 1950s she began work as a reporter and weekly columnist for the Wilton News. In 1986 the Wilton News became the Leader/News and Frances continued her weekly column, “From the Files.” She continued to write for the Leader/News as well as the Bismarck Tribune and a biweekly column for the Farm and Ranch Guide, “Then and Now,” until 1994. She had a special interest in North Dakota history and this collection contains her extensive research files on a variety of topics.
Frances had articles and book reviews published in a variety of newspapers, magazines and journals including North Dakota Outdoors, REC Magazine, the Minneapolis Star & Tribune, North Dakota History, and the Fargo Forum. Two collections of her columns have been published: Prairie Scrapbook and Then and Now.

Frances was the Regan Town Clerk for 28 years, was Treasurer for the Regan School Board, Burleigh County Special Education Board member for nine years, taught Sunday School, Bible School, Adult Bible classes and vacation Bible School at Sunne Lutheran Church in Regan and was a guest speaker for a North Dakota history class at the University of Mary for six years. Frances earned many awards including one from the American Association for State and Local History in 1978, the Woman of Achievement award from the ND Press Women in 1985, and Excellence in Local History award from the ND State Historical Board in 1988.

Frances Wold died in Bismarck September 20, 1995. Her husband Joseph preceded her in death in Regan in 1971.
