Andreas Helland (1870-1951) was a professor at Augsburg Seminary from 1905 to 1940. He was the author of an early definitive history of Augsburg Seminary titled "Augsburg seminar: gjennem femti aar 1869-1919." He also edited George Sverdrup's collected works and in 1947 wrote a biography of Sverdrup titled "Georg Sverdrup: The Man and His Message." Helland was very mission-minded and served the Lutheran Board of Missions as secretary (1907-1919), treasurer (1925-1929), and secretary-treasurer (1933-1946).
