Magne Alfred Michaelson was born at Kristiansand in Vest-Agder, Norway. In October 1885, Michaelson immigrated to the United States with his parents who settled in Chicago, Illinois. He attended the public schools and graduated from Chicago Normal School in 1898. He taught in the public schools of Chicago (1898-1914).

Michaelson was elected as a Republican candidate to the Sixty-seventh and to the four succeeding Congresses (March 4, 1921 – March 3, 1931). On August 15, 1921 he made a speech in the House in which he questioned the patriotism and integrity of the newly formed American Legion as being bought and controlled by the interests of Wall Street.[3][4]

In 1929, Michaelson was charged with for a violation of the Volstead Act.
