Gisselquist was born July 12, 1921 in Elmore, MN to Rev. John O. Gisselquist and Ida (Engelstad) Gisselquist. He spent his early years in Centerville, SD. The family moved to Minneapolis in 1937. He attended Minnehaha Academy, Augsburg College and received his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota. Gisselquist spent more than three decades on the faculty of Augsburg College. Over the years, he also held positions on various church and community boards.
