Notes The Russells were frequent guests at the Nelson ranch at Riverdale, near Great Falls. In 1902, the Great Falls Shakespeare Club met at the Nelson ranch for a picnic, and the hostess planned and served a Shakespearean menu. In the midst of the festivities, a thunderstorm chased the ladies from their picnic bower. Later, Russell drew an amusing sketch of them fleeing, then he created this sculpture of Puck as a gift to the Nelsons.
