Aslag Benson was born in Norway and came to America in 1865. Benson resided in Christine, North Dakota, and was an early settler of that community. From 1889, he opened a general store in Christine in partnership with Austin Johnsgard (1864-1951). After seven years, Johnsgard bought Benson out. He was a Democrat representing North Dakota's 12th legislative district.
