Sigurd F. Olson Articles
Preserving the legacy.
Some of these articles were published in 1951 in North Country Magazine. Sigurd also wrote a couple of hundred short sketches for newspapers; he wrote a few between 1937 and 1939, but most were from 1940 to 1943, and were syndicated to a number of newspapers, mostly in the Midwest. Sigurd’s papers at the Minnesota Historical Society include the manuscript drafts of these articles, but not actual newspaper clippings. A sample of these articles appear below. Many of them probably were published as part of his “America Out of Doors” syndicated column, but there is nothing in his papers to indicate which ones did or did not get printed.
