Frances Kroll Ring, 1916 - 2015

“Grandma, was F. Scott Fitzgerald anti-Semitic?”

“Of course not. Not when I knew him, at least.”

Grandma, known to the rest of the world as Frances Kroll Ring, was F. Scott Fitzgerald’s last secretary and personal assistant before he died. She knew a lot about Fitzgerald, but she knew a lot about many things by the time she died. She was 99 years old.
