The following is Ms. Long's obituary dated February 13, 1956:

    Fannie Louella Long, who used "Louella Long" as her professional name, was born into a family of avid Christian Scientists, although she was not a Christian Scientist herself.

    Ms. Long attended the Minnesota School of Art (1918-1919), the Art Student's League (1919-1920), the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (1924-1926), and the Art Students League (1927-1928).

    These two works by Ms. Long show her power as an artist.

    Augustana College has several of the artist's works in its collection.
