Olaf A. Tveitmoe

Olaf Tveitmoe was a powerful labor leader in San Francisco. It was believed that Tveitmoe was involved in the Los Angeles Times bombing and that he later conspired with Darrow to raise the money for bribing jurors in the McNamara trial. Tveitmoe was originally from Valdrez, Norway and he attended St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. He was sentenced to 18 months in Stillwater prison in Minnesota for forgery committed in Goodhue County, Minnesota but he was pardoned by the governor in December 1894. His name is sometimes spelled Tvietmoe.
