  • In 1915 Peter Norbeck has since 1901 been president of the Norbeck- Nicholson Company of Redfield, which controls a
    process for the sinking of artesian wells, and that he is in this connection an important representative of industrial activity in the state is indicated in the fact that the firm is employing three hundred workmen. He also has other business connections and his spirit of enterprise and initiative is an element in the growing prosperity of the state. Mr. Norbeck is a native of South Dakota, his birth having occurred in Clay county on the 27th of August, 1870, his parents being Rev. George and Kern (Kongsvig) Norbeck, who came to this state in 1868 from Norway, at which time they took up their abode in Clay county upon a farm of one hundred and sixty acres. There they resided until 1885 and the
    father was diligent, active and successfully engaged in the cultivation and improvement of his property. He was not only a wide- awake and alert farmer and business man but also left the impress of his individuality upon the public records of the county, which he represented in the territorial legislature in 1872-3. He afterward removed to Charles Mix county and was honored with election to the first general assembly of South Dakota after the admission of the state into the Union, serving in 1889 and 1890. He still makes his home in Charles Mix county, but his wife passed away in April, 1894, and was laid to rest in the Bloomington cemetery. For forty-seven years the name of Norbeck has figured in connection with events which have shaped the history of this portion of the northwest and the same spirit of enterprise manifested by the father is also Possessed in a large measure by his son, Peter Norbeck, who started in business well equipped for responsible duties by a liberal education, having supplemented his public-school course by three terms, study in the State University. He was early trained to the work of the fields and remained upon his father's farm until he reached the age of twenty-five years. He then introduced small deep artesian wells into the state by developing a process for putting down such wells. He continued the business alone for two or three years and then entered into partnership with Charles L. Nicholson, with whom he is still associated. The process which he has developed makes it possible for almost everyone to have an artesian well, for he has brought the price within reach of the great majority. The undertaking has been very successful and is one of the most beneficial that has been introduced into the state. The business has grown steadily and something of the volume of their patronage is indicated in the fact that the firm is today employing three hundred men, who represent them in various parts of the northwest. The work has been organized and developed under various branch concerns, one of which is known as the North Dakota Artesian Well Company, and another The Anchor Development Company, of both of which Mr. Norbeck is the president, as he is of the parent company, which is today one of the most important business concerns not only in Spink county but in South Dakota. In a land where the rainfall is somewhat light the water problem has always been a serious one, but through the efforts of Mr. Norbeck this has largely been solved for South Dakota and the reasonable prices which he receives for putting down wells makes it possible for almost every farmer to have upon his own place an artesian well affording him an unlimited supply of good pure water. In June, 1901, in Sioux City, Iowa, Mr. Norbeck was united in marriage to Miss Lydia Anderson, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Nels Anderson, both deceased. They were pioneers of South Dakota in 1879, in which year they settled in Yankton. Their burial place is in Bloomington, this state. Mr. and Mrs. Norbeck have four children: Nellie, Ruth and Harold, all attending school; and Selmer, at home. Mr. Norbeck is not only a leader along business lines but also is a leader of public thought and action and for three terms has represented his district in the state senate and at the last primaries was nominated for the position of lieutenant governor. He is a progressive republican in political belief. His brother Enoch was also a member of the general assembly during two terms, beginning 1909 and 1911, serving in the house, while his brother was a member of the senate. The Norbeck family has also taken an active part in the moral progress of the state. The father as one of the pioneer settlers tramped all over this country, meeting his own expenses and organizing the Norwegian Lutheran church. He founded a number of churches of that denomination during a period of thirty years of active labor that has been his real life work and
    he is still interested in the further development of the church, his efforts being of far-reaching effect. Peter Norbeck is likewise a member of the Norwegian Lutheran church and cooperates heartily in the movements to extend its influence and promote its
    growth. It would be impossible to disassociate the name of Norbeck with the history of South Dakota, so important, valuable and honorable a part have the members of the family borne in advancing the material, intellectual, political, social and moral
    welfare of the state.4
  • Peter Norbeck (August 27, 1870 - December 20, 1936) was an American politician from South Dakota. After serving one term as the ninth Governor of South Dakota, Norbeck was elected to three consecutive terms as a United States Senator. Norbeck was the first native-born Governor of South Dakota to serve in office (Norbeck was born in the portion of the Dakota Territory that would later become the state of South Dakota). He is best remembered as "Mount Rushmore's great political patron", for promoting the construction of the giant sculpture at Mount Rushmore and securing federal funding for it.
