She later became professor of history at Wyoming State University. Photograph taken by Sidney L. Webb in Berkeley, California during the summer of 1913. From "Glimt fra Agnes Mathilde Wergelands liv" (Glimpses from the Life of Agnes Mathilde Wergeland) by Maren Michelet, published in Minneapolis, Minnesota, 1916.
