Norwegian historian and politician of the Labour Party. In 1921 he joined the group around the communist periodical Mot Dag, and when Mot Dag was formalised as an organisation, Ording became one of the prominent members.
During World War II, Ording was exiled together with Nygaardsvold's Cabinet. He escaped to the UK on the Royal Navy cruiser Devonshire, along with King Haakon, Crown Prince Olav, and the Norwegian Government, in June 1940. In London he worked as a consultant for the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Trygve Lie. He became known to the occupied Norwegian people for his news commentaries, broadcast from London through BBC Radio.
After the war Ording continued as foreign affairs advisor under Halvard Lange, although he declined Lange's offer to be appointed as State Secretary in both 1949 and 1953. From 1947 to 1959 he held the position of professor of international history at the University of Oslo.
Ording died on 26 July 1967 in Oslo, Norway, at the age of 68 after having suffered from Alzheimers for several years.
