Introduction
Bjarne had a good life. When he retired, he built a house about two kilometers from the center of Våler, where he went skiing in the winter till he was in the eighties. He had his own potatoes at his land. The whole family were quite often gathered at the house "Solbu" for great times. There were his daughters Ruth and Synnøve and their husbands with their 4 children and his son, Knut Paul with his wife and their daughter. Bjarnes wife was real good at cooking. Her name was Karen, and she was more quiet than Bjarne, who was a very social and talkative and laughing person. As grandparents they were the best. When Bjarne asked his grandchildren for services as painting some walls or participate in the harvest, fruits, vegetables and potatoes, he always paid us generously. He was proud of us, and he cared a lot about us. He was not afraid of telling us what not do to when we were teen-agers.

1886 - 1972 World Events

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Bjarne's lifetime.

In 1886, in the year that Bjarne Ourom was born, on February 14th, the first train left Los Angeles for the East -by the way of the transcontinental railroad - with a cargo of oranges. Due to irrigation and the import of water, Los Angeles was the ideal place to grow oranges - which became a popular addition to Christmas stockings.

In 1892, Bjarne was merely 6 years old when on October 12th, the "Pledge of Allegiance" was first recited in unison by students in U.S. public schools. Composed the previous August by Francis Bellamy, it was to be recited in 15 seconds and originally read: "I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." "Under God" was added in the 1950's.

In 1924, by the time he was 38 years old, in May, wealthy college students Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb kidnapped and killed 14 year old Robert Franks "in the interest of science". Leopold and Loeb thought that they were intellectually superior and that they could commit the perfect crime and not be caught. They were brought in for questioning within 8 days and quickly confessed. Clarence Darrow was hired as their defense lawyer, getting them life imprisonment instead of a death sentence. Loeb was eventually killed in prison - Leopold was released after 33 years, dying of a heart attack at age 66.

In 1959, he was 73 years old when on January 3rd, Alaska became the 49th state of the United States and the first state not a part of the contiguous United States. The flag was changed to display 49 stars.

In 1972, in the year of Bjarne Ourom's passing, on September 5th, the Palestinian terrorist group Black September, with the assistance of German neo-nazis, kidnapped and killed 11 Israeli athletes at the Olympic Games in Munich. The attackers crept into the Olympic Village and abducted the athletes while they were sleeping. A German policeman was also killed.
