At wikipedia we can read about him:

Olaf Barda (17 August 1909 – 2 May 1971 in Oslo), born Olaf M. Olsen, was a Norwegian chess player.
He was the first Norwegian awarded the title of International Master, which he received in 1952.
Barda won the Norwegian Chess Championship six times, 1930 (still with the name Olsen), 1947, 1948, 1952, 1953, and 1957.[1]
Barda authored the Norwegian instruction manual "Sjakk!", and wrote the chess column for the newspaper Dagbladet.
Barda was also a strong correspondence chess player, winning the Norwegian correspondence chess championships in 1946 and 1949/1950.
He received the title of Grandmaster in correspondence chess in 1953.
