Early Life, Family Background and Education
Jack Dalrymple was born on October 16, 1948 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the son of Mary Josephine (Knoblauch) and John Stewart Dalrymple, Jr. He spent many of his formative years in Casselton, North Dakota on his family's wheat farm, which was established in 1875 by his great-grandfather, Oliver Dalrymple.
Jack Dalrymple's prominent family history is closely intertwined with the early histories of North Dakota and Minnesota. Oliver Dalrymple, an 1856 Yale Law School graduate, was a land speculator and wheat farmer. In 1874, Oliver started a very successful 3,000 acre wheat farm, and was known as the "Minnesota Wheat King". He amassed a huge number of acres, topping 100,000 acres in Minnesota and North Dakota by the turn of the 20th Century. Dalrymple Farm, located in the Red River Valley near the border with Minnesota, become the North Dakota's first large-scale wheat farm. Those large-scale farms huge farms became known as Bonanza farms, and dominated wheat production in the late 19th century.
In 1966, Dalrymple graduated from the Blake School (Minneapolis), a private co-educational day school, where he took the preparatory course to earn his high school diploma.
Wheat Farmer and Agribusiness Executive
Jack Dalrymple returned after graduation to North Dakota, going to work managing the family's Dalrymple Farm in the Red River Valley, a large durum wheat producer in the Casselton area.
In 1983, Dalrymple was named the Outstanding Young Farmer of the United States of America in 1983 by Outstanding Farmers of America (OFA). Founded in 1976, OFA is an agricultural fraternal organization with more than 1,500 members nationwide, focusing on offering professional development for farmers, creating opportunities to share ideas with other agricultural professionals, and supporting pro-agriculture policy and legislation.
The OFA Outstanding Young Farmer Awards Program grooms and develops young farmers to become better business professionals. The program also focuses on facilitating positive interaction with career government officials and elected politicians to communicate the OFA perspectives regarding agricultural issues, policies, potential legislation and concerns.
Throughout the 1980s into the early 1990s, Dalrymple became increasingly involved in creating new markets and products for North Dakota wheat. He was the founding board chairman of Dakota Growers Pasta Company, formed as an agricultural cooperative of more than 1,100 primarily North Dakota wheat growers in 1992. The cooperative grew to become North America's third-largest manufacturer and marketer of dry pasta products. Dakota Growers Pasta provides an array of products for retail brands, retail private label and foodservice.
As Dakota Growers Pasta grew, Dalrymple spearheaded the transition of the structure of the organization, from a cooperative to a full C corporation. "'The main reason (for the structure change) was to give us an opportunity to raise capital,' Dalrymple said, to also buy back shares from shareholders who wanted to liquidate as well as perform acquisitions."
Dakota Growers Pasta was sold in May 2010 for about $240 million to a Canadian firm, Viterra Inc. Opposition to the Viterra sale was largely due to the fact that "the cooperative was created with the help of the state-owned Bank of North Dakota, other rural cooperatives and the city of Carrington, where the cooperative was based." Some government leaders felt strongly that these entities should also benefit from the sale.
Ernst and Young (now EY) selected Jack Dalrymple as the 2007 Master Winner Award Winner Upper Midwest Region for his work in helping to found and guide Dakota Growers Pasta Company.
During the 1980s, Dalrymple served on the Casselton (ND) Jobs Development Commission.
In the 1990s, Dalrymple was chairman of the Board for Prairie Public Television (now Prairie Public), the PBS affiliate which also provides radio and public media services serving North Dakota and the surrounding region.
North Dakota State Legislator
State House Elections and District Represented
Dalrymple served as chairman of the House Appropriations committee for four years. In the 1999-2000 interim, he also chaired the Budget Section, the legislative panel charged with reviewing spending issues between sessions.
U.S. Senate elections
In December 1987, Dalrymple announced he would run for the U.S. Senate. He lost the Republican nomination to State House Majority Leader Earl Strinden. Strinden lost the general election to incumbent Democrat U.S. Senator Quentin Burdick.
On September 8, 1992 Burdick died, leaving a vacant seat. Governor George Sinner appointed Burdick's widow Jocelyn Burdick to fill the vacancy until a special election was held. She was not a candidate for election to the rest of the term. On September 17, 1992 Dalrymple announced he would run in the special election. In October 1992, he won the Republican nomination. U.S. Senator Kent Conrad, of North Dakota's other senate seat, defeated Dalrymple 63%-34%. Dalrymple only won three counties in the state: Billings, McIntosh, and Sheridan.
Lieutenant Governor of North Dakota
Dalrymple was elected as Lieutenant Governor of North Dakota in 2000 on the Republican ticket with John Hoeven. He was re-elected as Lieutenant Governor in 2004 and 2008 along with then-Governor Hoeven.
Governor of North Dakota
Then-Lt. Governor Dalrymple became governor following the resignation of John Hoeven, who was elected to the U.S. Senate on November 2, 2010. The transition took place in accordance with the gubernatorial succession provisions of the Constitution of North Dakota. Two days later, on November 4, 2010, Dalrymple designated now-former U.S. Attorney for North Dakota Drew Wrigley as his successor to become Lieutenant Governor, once his transition to the governor's office was completed.
On December 7, 2010, Hoeven officially tendered his resignation as governor to Alvin Jaeger, the North Dakota secretary of state. Later that day, in front of a joint session of the North Dakota Legislative Assembly and before a statewide television audience, Dalrymple was sworn in as governor, and then Wrigley was sworn in as lieutenant governor.
On November 1, 2011, Governor Dalrymple announced on a multi city tour of North Dakota that he would run for a full four-year term as governor, with Wrigley as his running mate. In 2012, Dalrymple handily defeated Democratic challenger Ryan Taylor in the General Election to serve a full term as governor.
North Dakota does not place term limits upon either the governor or the lieutenant governor, meaning that an individual may be elected to and serve for any number of terms.
Dalrymple married the former Betsy Wood in 1971. The couple has four daughters.

Prior to him calling in the National Guard private security officers used pepper spray and attack dogs against the non-violent protesters.
