Biography/HistoryThe Oscar H. Will & Company catalog for 1942 featured a painting by Bismarck artist Clell Gannon. In this image, corn is an important trade item long before European Americans had begun to settle North Dakota. We know the value of corn is high because a man has brought a horse to trade for corn. Horses were extremely valuable trade items, too. 6. Oscar's son George Will worked for his father's seed company. He took an interest in Bismarck's history and his family's role in the developing city. Many years after Oscar Will died, George reflected on his father's contribution to the city of Bismarck.
