    Biography Note

  • Louise Kelley Frisbie, a native of Jacksonville, was born in 1913 and moved to Bartow in 1935 after graduating from Florida Southern College. She was on the staff of Summerlin Institute (now Bartow High School) for three years before joining her husband on the staff of the Polk County Democrat. After writing a series of articles on Fort Meade, she began to write her historical column, "Pioneers," which led to her three books, Peace River Pioneers, Yesterday?s Polk County and Florida?s Fabled Inns. In 1972, Governor Reubin Askew appointed her to the Polk County Historical Commission, where she served for 16 years. She was a founding member of the Polk County Historical Association and the first editor of its quarterly. In 1976, she was honored by the Florida Senate for her work in preserving local history. Louise Frisbie died in 1989.
