Settler history from Spring Grove and surroundings, Minnesota by O.S. Johnson
How this story came into being.
Coming home from my visit to Norway in the fall 1914 I found a letter from professor A.A. Veblen with a request to write something from these great Norwegian towns around Spring Grove for the newspaper “Samband”. I replied that I didn‟t feel skilful enough to do it and recommended him someone else to ask. But after some correspondence with this prominent countryman A.A. Veblen, I started to write. Most part of it was printed in “Samband”. Many urged me to publish the text in a book. But we owe it to A.A. Veblen that it came into existence. -O.S. Johnson
