Svenska Tribunen -- August 18, 1888The Americans and the Scandinavians
The Chicago Times devoted almost an entire column last Sunday to the Swedish, Norwegians and Danish people living in Chicago.....
The paper stated that the Scandinavians are known widely to be an industrious and hardworking people. They learn the English language faster and better than any other nationality and take a lively and intelligent part in politics. Most of them are Republicans but many are going to follow Congressman John Lind of Minnesota and vote the Democratic ticket.
Among the more prominent Swedes in Chicago is Robert Lindblom, who is a very active man.
He is a man who likes to "sing out" his opinion in such a sarcastic manner that he is envied among many newspaper men.
