  • Francis Lee Jaques (1887–1969) was one of the prominent wildlife artists and illustrators of his day. He illustrated countless books written by his wife, Florence Page Jaques. The couple spent many summers canoeing the areas around the Boundary Waters on Minnesota’s Canadian border. Jaques spent his childhood in Aitkin, Minnesota, and his art is featured in major collections housed at the Museum of Natural History in New York and the James Ford Bell Museum of Natural History in Minneapolis.
