In Pierre, South Dakota, we visited the capitol building. It was quite nice on the inside:
In one hallway, we found a few display cases featuring photos of former South Dakota first ladies/families.
Two names that caught my eye were Calantha and Borghild.
Calantha was the step-daughter of governor William Bulow, in office from 1927 to 1931.
She was the daughter of his second wife, Sarah. Sarah’s younger daughter, Venice, had died as a baby. Bulow’s children with his first wife, Katherine, were named Maurene, William Jr., and Kathleen.
Borghild was the sister of governor Nils Boe, in office from 1965 to 1969.
Nils wasn’t married, so Borghild served as first lady while he was governor. Their parents were Norwegian immigrants named Nils and Sissel (Sissel is a form of Cecilia). Their three sisters were named Karen, Dagney and Lois.

I recently got back from a 2-week road trip through South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming:
(We set off on this one just two days after getting back from Toronto. Why? Insanity, I suppose.)
I spotted a bunch of interesting names on this trip, but instead of one massive post, I thought I’d break it all up into a series of smaller posts.
Here are some of the names I’ll be talking about:
- Dora, Dixie, Mollie, Pam
- Calamity Jane
- Harley Davidson & Harley Rider
- Augusta & Adeline
- Evil Knevil
- Calantha & Borghild
I’ll come back and add links as the posts are published. Hope you enjoy!
