Note: (Letter written in Swedish translated into English)Carl Swensson on his birthday the 20th of February 1882. As on this day I know you have a birthday, I want to congratulate you as heartily as I can (with all my heart). Live always content and happy for many “good” years, Though times are changing (confusing) it still should be possible. Although far from each other we are, God with his kind eye …?… looks out for us, And …?… protects us from harm, This He does gladly if we ask kindly. Oh you our dear boy and beloved son, You must celebrate with happiness this “special” birthday, Amongst siblings and friends you are happy, And I am sure too that you are, It is your dear mother who wishes you everything, Because the thoughts they rush from morning till sundown?. To you and to my …?… , Oh now if only the Father won’t forget us (all), this is wished for by your humble affectionate mother and father.

  • MM593 – Alvin Garfield Swanson b1891 Blunt,Hughes,SD -d1928 mAmy Lillian Cesander b1897 Wau, Marathon,WI,-d1994 Note: Alvin moved with his parents to a farm three miles northwest of LaBolt, SD in the spring of 1901. He attended and graduated from Milbank, SD High School in 1911 and taught two terms of country school. Later he attended the Normal School at Valley City, ND graduating from the teacher’s course. In 1916, he joined the army and went to the Mexican border, re-enlisting in 1917 to go overseas. He spent eighteen months with the A.E.F. in the 164th Infantry Regiment, Medical Corps and was discharged on September 17, 1919 with a disability. Soon after returning from France he started farming the home place, but had to give this up in 1921 because of a heart ailment. He entered South Dakota Univ., Vermillion, SD in the fall of 1921, graduating from the Law School with honors in the spring of 1924. After graduation, he and a friend from Law School started a law practice in White, SD. He then found out about an opening for the State’s Attorney in Bennett Co., Martin, SD and went there legalizing his residence and subsequently running and winning that position. With two of his friends he organized the Martin Implement Co. in Martin, SD and was active in its management until illness forced him to give up business in May of 1928. He spent several weeks in the Veteran’s Hospital in Hot Springs, SD. Early in September of 1928 he was taken to the Veteran’s Hospital in Kansas City, MO where his condition at times seemed promising. In addition to his heart ailment he contracted dropsy, but was on his way to recovery even with this added burden when he contracted a severe cough, which drained his strength and resulted in his death early in the evening of December 16, 1928. Note: Amy’s father was the minister of the Swedish Lutheran Church in Wau, WI where she was born. At age two, they moved to Bridgeport, CT. In 1905, they moved to Buffalo, MN until 1909, then moved to Sioux Falls, SD where she graduated from high school. She attended Stout Institute, Menomonie, WI to study a two-year Home Economics course. Following, she stayed with her parents until she got her first Home Economics teaching job in Strandquist, MN in 1918, and where she taught grades 5,6,7, and 8 for $75 a month. The next year she moved to Mohall, ND where she taught 8th grade and Home Economics. She said that was the coldest place she ever lived. For two years she taught upper grades at a two-teacher school at LaBolt, SD and was the principal. In the fall of 1922, she attended the Lutheran Bible School in St. Paul, MN for one semester. January 1923 she went to Buffalo, SD to teach in the high school as well as directed plays. She was married to Alvin Garfield Swanson on June 18, 1923 at the Lutheran Church in Standburg, SD. They went to live in Vermillion where Alvin was a senior law student. After Alvin died, she moved to Sioux Falls, SD as a part-time student at Augustana In 1930, she finished her course work in Home Economics at Brookings, SD. She married Carl V. Eastman, a long-time friend, on October 1, 1944. (John G. Swanson)

The family moved to Martin, SD and lived there until Stanley was four when his father died. They moved to Sioux Falls, SD to be close to his mother’s family. Later, they moved back to Brookings where Stanley’s mother went back to school to get her degree in Home Economics from SD State Univ. They then moved to Rapid City, SD where Stanley’s mother began to teach Home Economics at Rapid City High School. During this time Stanley and his brother contracted scarlet fever, which would contribute to Stanley’s growing deafness. They moved to Hot Springs, SD where Stanley graduated from high school in 1943 and enjoyed reading prodigiously, listening to classical music at the same time. When he ran out of books to read he would start on the dictionary and then the encyclopedia. Stanley started work as a clerk-typist at the Army Depot at Igloo, SD which was near Edgemont. He entered SD State Univ. at Brookings, SD. It was at a school function that he met Dora Aarness and asked if he could walk her home. Later, he was drafted and he served in the Army in Europe and was in the Battle of the Bulge. After he was discharged, he went back to Brookings where he and Dora were married on June 6, 1946. They moved to Boulder, CO where Stanley attended the Univ. of Colorado and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in English and Education in June 1949. After graduating, Stanley taught high school English in Lemmon, SD; Gillette; and Sheridan, WY. During three summers, Stanley worked on a Master’s Degree in Library Science at the Univ. of Mich. After graduating with that degree, Stanley became the Head Librarian for six years at Nebraska State Teachers College in Chadron, NE. But, looking for greater challenges, Stanley applied for librarian positions at a number of state schools on the west coast which brought him to Corvallis, OR in 1962. He worked first in the cataloging department at OSU’s Kerr Library and later was in Bibliographic Selections and Evaluation in Acquisitions. He also had done book reviews on the Oregon State radio station. Stanley and Dora made several trips to England in search of additional books for the library. He retired from OSU in 1988. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in June 1996 and he died just three days after his 72nd birthday. (John G. Swanson)
