Ole Edvart Rolvaag

a.k.a. O. E. Rolvaag

Author Code: NOER

Born: Apr. 22, 1876 - Donna, Norway

Died: Nov. 5, 1931 - Northfield, Minnesota, USA

Carrying on the family tradition, Rolvaag worked with his father and brothers in the fishing trade. In 1896, an uncle living in America sent him a ticket to come to the States, and he arrived in South Dakota where he worked as a farmhand for a couple of years before entering Augustana Academy in 1898. He graduated in 1901 and then took a bachelor's degree from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. He was appointed a professor of St. Olaf College in 1906. In 1908 he received his U.S. citizenship. He received his master's degree from St. Olaf in 1910 and in 1916, became head of the Norwegian Department, a post he would hold until his death. Rolvaag wrote most of his work in Norwegian and in 1912, published his first work, American Letters. His work centered primarily on pioneer life and in 1923, his masterpiece, In Those Days, was published to critical acclaim. The following year Founding the Kingdom appeared as the natural sequel and the two would be subsequently joined to form Giants in the Earth (1927). In 1926, Rolvaag was knighted in the Order of St. Olaf by King Haakon VII of Norway. His other works include On Forgotten Paths (1914), Two Fools: A Portrait of Our Times (1920), The Boat of Longing (1921), Concerning Our Heritage (1922), Peder Victorious (1929), Pure Gold (1930) and Their Father's God (1931).
