Francis O. Lindquist, a skilled photographer and a veteran of the Spanish-American war, now living in Superior, Wis., was born in Hastings, Minn., in 1872, son of Nils Peter Lindquist and his wife, Hannah Anderson, both natives of Sweden.
Francis O. Lindquist passed his boyhood on the farm, remaining at home until he was sixteen years of age, when he went to Battle Lake. While there he passed one year as a clerk in a store, and in 1889 he obtained a similar position in a dry goods store in Duluth. After a year in the latter place he located in Superior, where for three years he clerked in a dry goods store, proving himself an admirable salesman. By nature he was intended for an artist, having a good eye for color and form, and he determined to learn photography. In 1901 he bought a gallery which he had conducted for several years, and is now on the high road to success. His work compares favorably with that of artists who have been much longer at work, and he is constantly studying to improve. For grace in posing his subjects, no photographer in the city is his superior.
