BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH

Frithjof Holmboe was born in Oslo, Norway in 1879, and immigrated to the United States with his family in 1882, settling in Minneapolis. He was a photographer for Northern Pacific before opening his first photographic studio in New Salem, ND in 1907. That same year, he married Jennie F. (Holmboe). In 1909, Frithjof moved to Bismarck, setting up a studio across from the McKenzie (now Patterson) Hotel. Self-taught, he became interested in motion pictures in 1913, and formed the Publicity Film Company soon after. He contracted with the North Dakota Department of Immigration and various counties to produce promotional films to encourage relocation to North Dakota. He also contracted with businesses and produced commercial films about products agricultural and artistic. Holmboe was selected to accompany Governor Hanna to Oslo, Norway for the July 4, 1914 presentation of the Abraham Lincoln Bust to the kingdom of Norway; he filmed the event. Holmboe left North Dakota in 1921 as the post-war agricultural depression reduced calls for his work. Frithjof Holmboe died in California in 1967.
