Nell Foster Rogers of Gainesville, Florida, affectionately known as the 'Bloomer Girl', was a "people's lobbyist for better government" and Florida legislative icon for nearly 30 years. Ms. Rogers was the first woman to graduate in agriculture from Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College, where as a student she campaigned for woman's suffrage, thus beginning her lifelong cause as an activist. In 1947, she traveled to Tallahassee to oppose a bill requiring rabies inoculations for dogs. This marked the beginning of her long career as a watchdog over Florida's government.
