Abstract:

Diaries, account books, correspondence, and miscellany of a Minnesota horticulturist and farmer and his family, documenting his emigration from Sweden to Iowa in 1850, his settlement near Lake Waconia (Carver County, Minn.) in 1855, the building of his log cabin, the establishment of a school and a church, the beginnings of local government, and his experiments in fruit culture. Also mentioned are Peterson's activities in the Swedish Baptist Church and the local grange, on the town and school boards, and in third-party movements, and his exhibition of fruit at local and state fairs.

Most of the papers are in Swedish; the diaries and account books for 1855-1898 are accompanied by an English translation (typescript and longhand) by Emma M. Ahlquist. A typed, Swedish transcript of the diaries for 1850-1869 transcribed by the Andrew Peterson Society is also included.

Also included are Swedish language newspaper clippings and other items concerned with Vilhelm Moberg's use of the Peterson papers in his novels of Swedish emigration to America as well as printed material published by the Andrew Peterson Society in Sweden.
