Halvor Nerison Hauge and Other Farmers

Halvor Nerison Hauge and Other Farmers | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
Halvor Nerison Hauge (1830-1906) had much to be proud of in 1874: an imposing brick house, modern harvesting equipment and a growing family. When Dahl published a descriptive list of stereographs he had available for sale in 1876, he included "An American Farm Yard. H. Hauge."<p>Both Hauge and his wife Martha Howe were natives of Norway--Hauge had arrived as a teenager in 1844. Their farm in Section 18 of the Town of Christiana, supported a large herd of cattle for the dairy business. Among other generous gestures, Hauge donated land near his home for a cooperative cheese factory. This view has a Devon bull as the focal point and includes some line-back cattle, not a breed known for its milk-producing qualities.<p>Reproduced and described in David Mandel's "Settlers of Dane County:  The Photographs of Andreas Larsen Dahl" (Dane County Cultural Affairs Commission, 1985) p. 26-27</p>

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
This image is part of a larger collection of images created by Andreas Larsen Dahl, a Norwegian immigrant photographer who worked in Dane County, Wisconsin throughout the 1870s and early 1880s. Dahl was, by his own words, an "artist." His early photographs are similar to that of other landscape photographers who traveled the countryside in horse-drawn darkroom vans. Dahl lined up families in front of rural and urban houses. He induced his subjects to haul their parlor possessions out onto the front lawn, creating a family leisure scene in front of their house. Through the course of his career, he chronicled both rural and urban life of Norwegian immigrant families in Dane and surrounding counties. In 1883, he left photography to join the Norwegian Evangelical Lutheran Seminary. He was ordained as a minister.
