About Frederick F. Riggs

A surveyor and fur trader with the Hudson Bay Company, Fred Riggs joined the Chippewa tribe, learned their language and staunchly defended the rights of Native Americans against the government. It was from her grandfather, who refused to belong to any church while contributing money to many, that Chipman acquired her independence of thought. (Her decision to marry a university philosophy professor was nothing like her sister's choice of Isaac Topping, who traveled with a circus-like road show, complete with a singing donkey. Augusta is said to have become a composer and writer.)
