Jorgen Aaland

Fargo, North Dakota.

is a carpenter. He was born in Veblungsnes on November 17, 1895 and emigrated to America in 1915 to Howard, South Dakota. That same year he came to Fargo, North Dakota and works as a carpenter for the Dakota Sash & Door Company. He is not a "Little Fellow", and stands 6 1/2 feet tall. "His Better Half" – whom he has not yet found - must surely look up to him.
