DescriptionNancy Cooper Russell—wife and business manager of renowned western artist Charles M. Russell—was a woman ahead of her time. A self-taught businesswoman with the propensity to take charge, Nancy helped Charlie Russell become the highest paid living artist of his time. Join historic interpreter Mary Jane Bradbury as she brings Nancy Russell to life, sharing the story of life with Montana’s cowboy artist, his gift for portraying the West of our imaginations, and his abiding connection to the place he called home.

Mary Jane Bradbury is a scholar and actress with over 25 years’ experience who brings history to life for audiences of all ages in the Rocky Mountain region. She is a member of the Humanities Montana and Colorado Humanities Speakers Bureaus, and before moving to Montana, was an historic interpreter for the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
