Fingar Thorsen Gronvold was born 25 April 1868 in Eggedal, Buskerud, Norway. He received his education at a common school in Norway and emigrated in 1886. Gronvold came to North Dakota and settled near Rugby. He owned and operated a hardware store called Gronvold-Halseth Company. He later went into an automobile business with his sons.
In 1899, Gronvold became active in politics and was elected to the North Dakota House of Representatives as a member of the Republican Party. He was elected to the state senate in 1908 and held this seat until 1918. In 1930, he returned to the senate and served until his death on 7 November 1941. Gronvold was involved in community affairs, serving twenty three years on the Board of Directors for the Good Samaritan Hospital in Rugby. He was also a member of the Rugby City Council.
Eunice Constance Gronvold Kalloch was born 5 May 1908 near Rugby, North Dakota. She was the daughter of F.T. (Fingar Thorsen) and Alice (Egeland) Gronvold. After attending one year at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, she enrolled at the University of North Dakota in 1927 and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education in 1930. She was a member of the Chi Omega sorority, Zeta Phi Eta - an honorary drama fraternity, and played intramural womens hockey, basketball, and volleyball. Kalloch earned a Master's degree in Geography from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, and worked for a time at the Pentagon with U.S. Army Intelligence.
Eunice married Parker Cromwell Kalloch, Jr., in 1940 and moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 1945. She was an active member of many community and civic organizations including the League of Women Voters, the Albuquerque Bicentennial Commission, the Bernalillo County Chapter of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, and the Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce. In 1973, New Mexico Governor Bruce King declared a Eunice Kalloch Day and, in 1978, a park in Albuquerque was named in her honor.
Kalloch was also the author of two books: The First Ladies of New Mexico (1982), and Papa and Mama Were Pioneers (1983). Eunice Kalloch died 8 September 1988 in Albuquerque.
