Christopher Hornsrud

Christopher Andersen Hornsrud (November 15, 1859-December 13,1960) served as Prime Minister of Norway from January to February 1928. Although his tenure as Prime Minister was brief, his list of political accomplishments is not. He was the first Prime Minister to be from the Norwegian Labor Party, which now dominates most of the country's government. He also served as Postal Minister and was known for his knowledge of Norway's political history in his later years.
