Detail of the Knute Nelson Memorial on the Minnesota Capitol Grounds in St. Paul, Minnesota - The detail shows the Norwegian immigrants Knute Nelson and his mother Ingebjørg Haldorsdatter Kvilekval. Knute Nelson served as Minnesota’s first foreign-born governor (1893–1895) and as a United States congressman (1883–1889) and a senator (1895–1923). He is well known for the Nelson Act of 1889, which forcibly relocated Ojibwe people in Minnesota to the White Earth Indian Reservation. The bronze sculpture was done by sculptor John K. Daniels and dedicated in 1926.
