Peer Stromme was the founding editor of the newspaper. Stromme was also on the editorial staff of Norden (Chicago) from 1888-92. Chicago was at that time the cultural center of Norwegian America with twice as many Norwegian speaking residents as in Minneapolis. Politically, Dagbladet was independent with socialist and pro-labor leanings. The paper favored social progress and tariff reform. Dagbladet also had a weekly edition, titled Nordisk Folkeblad.
