Clarence Norman Brunsdale was born at Sherbrooke, Steele County, ND, on July 9, 1891, the son of Knute H. and Margaret (Norgaard) Brunsdale. He was known by his middle name, Norman.
Knute was born in WI in about 1856 to Norwegian immigrant parents. The family name had been Brunsdalen in Norway, but Knute's father dropped the "n" when he came to the U.S.. On May 29, 1888, Knute married Margaret Norgaard. Born in Hurdal, Norway June 5, 1860, Margaret had emigrated with her parents Nels and Eline when she was seven months old. The family settled near Decorah, IA. In 1885, Margaret came to ND, and taught school west of Hatton for several years. Knute Brunsdale passed away on January 17, 1899, while attending a board of education meeting of Mayville Normal College. He was forty 44 years of age and left his widow with six young children, aged nine to unborn.
Two years after Knute Brunsdale's death, Margaret moved to Portland, ND. She possessed unusual business ability and took over where her husband had left off. Knute had left a sizeable estate and Margaret managed it. She added to the estate by purchasing grant lands in Trail, Steele, LaMoure and Stutsman Counties and by practicing good management. In 1920 the K. H. Brunsdale estate owned eleven sections of land in Traill County and fourteen sections in Steele County. Margaret Brunsdale died April 1, 1927. During her lifetime, she donated to colleges and church institutions, including Concordia College (Moorhead, MN), and St. Olaf College (Northfield, MN). She was an active member of the Bruflat Lutheran Church in Portland. The family remained interested in farming and would ride horses out to the farm. The heirs, including Norman, managed the estate.
Six children were born to Knute and Margaret Brunsdale. They were: Carl N. Brunsdale, born on about March 7, 1889, died August 23, 1889; George Elmer, born February 23, 1890, died March l, 1970, made his adult home in Mayville; Clarence Norman, born July 9, 1891, died January 27, 1978; Kristian Edward, born August 16, 1892, died July 15, 1984, lived in Minneapolis; Anna Elizabeth, born September 10, 1894, died October 2, 1991, married Joseph Kjos and lived in Mayville; Karl Henry, born October 30, 1896, died December 2, 1967, was a resident of Fargo, ND; William Rudolph, born May 10, 1899, four months after his father's death, and was killed in an automobile accident in 1908.
Norman attended the one-room school house in Beaver Creek Township. He finished his elementary and high school education at Portland and completed a business course at Bruflat Academy, a Lutheran boarding school in Portland. He continued his education at Luther College in Decorah, IA. Norman was elected president of his class as a freshman, sophomore, and junior. He played tennis and baseball and managed the basketball and gymnastics teams. He enjoyed debate, oratory, literary science, and worked on the college paper. In 1914 Norman graduated summa cum laude.
After graduation Norman taught business at Bruflat Academy. In 1915 Norman and his brother took over the family farms. Norman married Carrie Lajord and in 1926 they built their family home in Mayville. Norman and Carrie raised two daughters, Margaret Marie, and Helen Lucille. Margaret graduated from Wellesley College and worked at the University of Minnesota (U of M). She married Edson G. Larson on October 8, 1955 at the Governor's mansion in Bismarck. They resided in Mayville where Edson engaged in farming. Helen graduated from Vassar College, and held newspaper and other journalistic positions. Helen married Percy D. Williams on August 4, 1954, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Bismarck. The couple made their home in Houston, TX, where Mr. Williams practiced law.
In 1926 Brunsdale was elected to the State Senate from Traill County, beginning a political career which would span the next 34 years. He was reelected in 1930, but was defeated in 1934 by the Non-Partisan League (NPL) candidate. In 1939 he was appointed to fill the unexpired senate term of Henry Leum, who had been killed in an automobile accident. Brunsdale was reelected in 1942 and 1946. He served as senate majority leader for three sessions and served as president pro tem in 1943.
In November 1950 Norman Brunsdale was elected Governor of ND. The Republican Organizing Committee had recognized his outstanding performance in the senate, which was the main reason for his selection as their candidate for governor. On January 3, 1951, Norman Brunsdale was sworn in as the twenty third Governor of ND. Brunsdale was reelected in 1952 and again in 1954. During his terms as governor, Norman was a supporter of water development, and promoted the Garrison Dam and Conservancy district. Brunsdale was also a champion of constructive legislation relating to agriculture, education, and mental illness. In 1950 the Highway Department was established, and under Brunsdale, major highway bills were passed.
Norman Brunsdale was appointed by Governor John Davis in the fall of 1959 to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by the death of William Langer. He served until June 1960, when a special election was held and Quentin Burdick was elected to fill the U.S. Senate Seat. Brunsdale and his wife returned to their home in Mayville and Norman resumed his farming until 1968. After retirement they spent winters in Arizona and California. Their last years were spent at the Luther Memorial Home in Mayville.
Much honor and recognition came to Norman Brunsdale because of his contributions to his state and community. In 1951, he received an Honorary Doctorate from Luther College in Decorah, IA where he was a trustee. He later received the Sioux award from UND for his support of higher education. He was named in Who's Who in North Dakota in 1955 and l958. Brunsdale also served as chairman and an organizer of the Republican Organizing Committee, served on the Board of Directors of Concordia College in Moorhead, was a Director of the Lutheran Welfare Society, first President of Mayville State Teachers College Foundation, member of the Church Council of the Evangelical Lutheran Church from 1932-1950, President of the Goose River State Bank in Mayville, director of the First and Farmers Bank of Portland, Vice President of the Russell Grader Manufacturing Company, member of Mayville Lutheran Church (serving on the church council and as Congregation president), associate member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Bismarck, organized and served as President of the ND Agricultural Business Council, headed the Heart Fund Campaign, and was a member of the Sons of Norway.
Norman Brunsdale died January 27, 1978. Funeral services were held at Mayville Lutheran Church where he had been member for many years. His burial was at Mayville Cemetery. Carrie Brunsdale passed away March 23, l982.
Norman Brunsdale was a man of the people, of the community, and of the state. He was dedicated to the betterment of the people of ND. His calm and self confidence, along with good judgment, experience, and a sense of fairness, made him an effective leader.

Correspondence about the 1956 dinner also includes testimonial letters. While documentation of the two events is fairly complete, the Brunsdales' personal correspondence has many gaps, dating only from the years 1907, 1931, and 1959. Some of the personal correspondence is undated.

The Photographic Negatives Subseries, ca. 1920s, includes images of farm scenes, the Brunsdale home, travel, family, friends, Carrie and Norman Brunsdale. The negatives have not been identified at the item level, and are organized by the envelopes that they came in. The original order within each envelope has been maintained.
The Slides Subseries, 1949-1958, is organized by type of slide. Originally, all of the slides were located in three cases, and each case had three drawers.
