IN MEMORIAM 
1891 1936 
FLOYD BJORNSTJERNE OLSON 
TWENTY-SECOND GOVERNOR 
OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA 

BORN IN NEAR POVERTY 
SCHOOLED IN ADVERSITY 
INTIMATE WITH HUNGER AND WANT 

OUT OF THIS CRUCIBLE 
CAME PIONEER LEADERSHIP 
WITH PURPOSEFUL DIRECTION 
AND THE INDOMITABLE COURAGE 
TO SEEK NEW FRONTIERS 
OF ECONOMIC SECURITY 
FOR THE UNDERPRIVILEGED 

TO THAT WHICH HE WROUGHT 
AN ENDURING MEMORIAL IS BUILDED 
IN THE HEARTS OF HIS PEOPLE
