The 2019 Spring Meeting of the Society was an enjoyable and memorable gathering, including dinner catered by Tre Kronor Restaurant, Swedish spring music by Merula, and more!

TIME: Reception begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Swedish American Museum, 5211 N. Clark Street, Chicago, IL

Professor Harald Runblom (Uppsala University, Sweden) will be given the Carl Sandburg Medal, the highest honor of the Swedish-American Historical Society. His pioneering research interests have focused on the role of migration in history and on multicultural societies, including immigration to Sweden, the Baltic Sea Region, and Jewish Swedish history. He will also be our featured speaker for the evening, discussing Sandburg in Sweden (appropriate, given the honor!) and speaking personally about his ties to Swedish-American scholarship and life over the decades.

Parking for the museum is available at the corner of Foster and Ashland, just one block away from the museum.
