K. C. Wangrud

Litchville, North Dakota

At the railroad station in Litchville, North Dakota I saw a married Norwegian Viking, a large, strong fellow, who resides with hotel owner K. C. Wangrud. On a trip to the hotel I received word that he was from Solor. I said that he reminded me of an acquaintance, Ole Bredesen Opset, who used to come often to Tommer to ask for directions in my office in Kristiania, where I was employed as a student for over three years. "He was my neighbor", Wangrud explained, and I added that Salor had fostered many such a large strong fellow. Wangrud came to America in 1883 to Kindred, North Dakota and he came to Litchville in 1887. He is also interested in farming and two of his sons and a son-in-law are farmers south of Litchville, North Dakota.
