Biographical NoteReturn to Top
Andrew Winberg was born in 1885 to Norwegian parents and orphaned by age 6. He emigrated to the United States from Norway in 1903 on a ship owned by Jonas Haaland, who was a sailing captain. Jonas's daughter Josephine later became Winberg's wife. Winberg first lived in Warren, Minnesota, but joined Josephine in Aberdeen, Washington in 1907. They were married in 1910 and had two sons, Clarence Justice (b. 1911) and Andrew Jr. (b. 1917).
Winberg organized the Bakery and Confectionery Workers, Local 82, in 1911 and served as president from 1918-1927. In 1926, he was elected a freeholder to draft a new charter for the City of Aberdeen. He served as a member of the Aberdeen Board of Education from 1936-1944 and as a trustee of Gray's Harbor Junior College from 1936-1948. Also from 1936-1948, he was chairman of the Gray's Harbor County Democratic Central Committee. As an active member of the Democratic Party, he was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention in 1940 and 1952, and was a candidate for Presidential Elector for Washington in 1956. He also served as State Legislator, 1942-1949; and as State Senator, 1951-1958. During his time as a senator, he served alongside Albert D. Rosellini, who later went on to become governor, and who Winberg worked with closely to secure legislation to bring the World's Fair to Washington. In 1955, he was appointed as a Commissioner of Century 21 World's Fair in Seattle.
Andrew Winberg died in 1965.
