Ole Gunderson (O.G.) Felland was born October 10, 1853 in Utica, Wisconsin.  He earned a Bachelor of Arts from Luther College in 1874, a Master of Art from Northwestern College in 1876 and graduated from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri in 1879.  In 1881, he joined the faculty at St. Olaf Academy where he taught Greek, Latin, German and Hebrew and in 1891, became the college’s librarian.

O.G. Felland married Thea Midboe in 1883 and together they had six children Thonny, Hermo, Elsa, Volborg, Osmund, and Nordis. He was an avid photographer and some of his favorite subjects were friends, family, the early construction of St. Olaf College, his plants and flowers, and the landscape surrounding St. Olaf College.  O.G. Felland passed away in 1938 at the home of his daughter Mrs. Arthur E. Armstrong in Bronson, Michigan and was buried in Northfield.
