Job in Colony:  

Other Info: He was one of the members of the colony when Pickett first named General Manager.

In 1920 "Shorty" Borgeson made a decision to move to a higher altitude and a dryer climate which he felt would be better for the malady with which he suffered.(NOTE-- It is unclear whether the name "Shorty" refers to Oscar or Oren Borgeson) or whether this was an entirely different Borgeson altogether.
