Minneapolis Public Library’s Gratia Countryman lived at 4721 Girard from 1912 until sometime between 1921 and 1929, as she was living in Robbinsdale by 1930.

"Having to vacate the Fremont house months before her new home was finished [in 1912], Gratia stored the furniture and moved into a hotel near the library. […] By winter, the home on Girard was finished"
