Nanna Bergitte Caroline With (born May 30, 1874 in Andenes , Vesterålen , † February 22, 1965 in Oslo ) was a Norwegian journalist, author, musician and teacher. She was Norway's first newspaper editor. Her father was Richard With , who gave the idea to Hurtigruten .


At the age of 15, Nanna With moved with her family to Bergen , where she visited Fru Griegs skole. Afterwards she studied music and singing in Paris and Berlin and started working as a music teacher. In 1905 she founded the Oslo Music Teachers Association together with Agathe Backer Grøhndahl and Thorvald Lammers and became its first chairman. In the same year, however, she returned to Storkmarknes to be responsible for the Vesteraalens Avis as editor for two years . It was there that she founded the Association for Women (Kvindesaksforening) in 1907. The following year she left for Germany to settle in Kristiania in 1909. There she founded the biweekly newspaper , which she later sold. However, she retained the rights to Nanna-With-Verlag , which served as the place of publication for an encyclopedia of persons and the first Norwegian comic in the magazine Für Haus und Heim : Kari, Per and Sören go to town . With was responsible for the lyrics, Gunnar Tandberg was the draftsman. It was published from 1912 to 1913. In addition, she worked as a sports editor for sportsmen and freelance journalists, u. a. for Aftenposten . In addition to her work as a teacher, journalist and editor, With is best known today for her association work. She founded the women's wing in the Freethinker Left , a contrary to the name of a conservative party. That party was spun off in 1927 into the Oslo Women's Party, which only existed until 1933. Around 1960, With managed the North Norwegian Student Dormitory (NNSE) in Oslo, which still exists today, for North Norwegians who are doing an apprenticeship or studying in Oslo.

With was also probably responsible for the introduction of the Majblomma in Norway, which was first marketed on a large scale from 1913 by the Norwegian Association for Women's Health and The National Association for Public Health for the benefit of tuberculosis patients. In 1947 she was awarded the Petter Dass Medal for her commitment to the Vereinigung des Nordlands . Furthermore, on July 1, 1937, she was honored with the Royal Medal of Merit in Gold. The North University has one of its lecture halls in Bodø named after Nanna With. In 1960, she published her memoir under the title Something To Live For .
