Norway succeeded in maintaining her neutrality during the First World War but Fridtjof Nansen was one of the most ener­getic spokesmen in favour of strengthening the defence programme. He believed that only by having a strong defence would the country be in a position to prevent a greater power from invading Norwegian territory. During extensive lecture tours throughout the country he warned the authorities against a reduction of the appropriation of funds for defence and emergency supplies. In 1917 he led a delegation which negoti­ated an agreement with the USA to provide food supplies to Norway. This agreement came into effect in 1918 and played a major role with regard to the supplies’ situation during the years immediately after the War. Source: The Fram Museum
