Scope and content

Oscar Adolphson at age 17. Oscar emigrated from Norway first to Wisconsin and later to the Peace Country (which he chose over Argentina). In 1918 Oscar was among the first to file on land in the Red Willow area which was ten years ahead of the main influx of homesteaders to the area. Oscar Adolphson and his wife Ellen contributed to the Valleyview community in many ways. Oscar, for instance, suggested the name "Valleyview" to replace "Red Willow Creek." He also started a freight service with his truck in the 1930s and established various dealerships in the Valleyview area. Oscar Adolphson was elected as the first trustee of the Valleyview area with the establishment of the East Smokey School District.
