Martin Nelson Lived Varied, Active Life

Martin T. Nelson, long time respected resident of Fergus Falls who died at the Pioneer Memorial home Saturday at 2:50 a.m. , was born in Tumuli township Nov. 15, 1873. His parents, Tollef and Marit Nelson, were pioneers who immigrated from Norway.

When he moved to Fergus Falls he was a member of Zion Hauge Lutheran church until it united with Our Savior's which later became the Bethlehem Lutheran church. For many years he directed choirs of chuches he attended. He also directed choirs in many rural churches. Throughout his lifetime he held many church offices.

Mr. Nelson's large acquaintance of friends and associates will remember his many and varied interests and activities. He organized and directed the frist city band in Fergus Falls. He was an alderman and was active in civic affairs for many years. He was an ardent hunter and fisherman, took up golf in his fifties and held the city championship several times. He was a member of the board of the Pioneer Memorial home for many years.

As a young adult Mr. Nelson taught school for two years. After the accidental death of his father, he returned to the home farm for a few years. Moving to Fergus Falls, he went into the fuel and monument business with T.H. Thoreson and later with B.L. Molstre.

He then became oil inspector for this area and after some years went into the restaurant business, owning and operating the Nelson cafe, first in the old Riverside apartment building on Washington avenue and later at the present location of the bus depot. For the past several years he had been in retirement with some real estate dealings as a sideline.

Mr. Nelson was married June 27, 1906, to Gena Molden who survives him. To their marriage were born Thomas O. Nelson, local businessman, and Gladys M. Nelson, a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force presently based at San Antonio, Texas. Also surviving him are a sister, Mrs. Arthur (Eline) Molden, and a brother Thore T. Nelson of Minneapolis.

Mr. Nelson's death occurred at 87 after a bed-ridden illness of two years.

Funeral services will be held at the Bethlehem Lutheran church tomorrow at 2 p.m. The Reve. J. M. Donohowe will officiate. Interment will be in the church cemetery. Friends may call at thet Olson Funeral Home.2

Olaf Morgan Norlie1

M, b. 11 January 1876, d. 22 June 1962
Biography* Wikipedia article 11/4/09:

He was born to Norwegian immigrant parents in Sioux City, Iowa. He went on to graduate from St. Olaf College in 1898, completed his Master’s degree at the University of Wisconsin in 1901, then earned his doctorate at the University of Minnesota in 1908. His dissertation was titled The Principles of Expressive Reading, a Study of the Human Voice. He also attended the Norwegian Lutheran United Church Seminary.

He served for eight years as a pastor in the United Norwegian Lutheran Church of America in Minnesota for 8 years. Then he went into teaching, first teaching Greek and psychology at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. He then went on to serve as Dean and professor of Religion at Hartwick College and Seminary. He went on to serve as librarian at St. Olaf College until his retirement. The library at St. Olaf has archival materials from his life and a large collection of his writings.

Due to his interest in statistics, in 1932 he was elected as a member of the American Mathematical Society. He was a member of the American Philological Association and a poet.
