Frank A. LUNDBERG, instructor at the Swedish M. E. Theological Seminary, was born April 11, 1875, at Halsberg, Nerike, Sweden. His father, a railway track inspector, was a prominent member of the local Methodist church. At an early age the son was brought to this country by his parent, who settled on a farm in Georgetown, Texas.Young LUNDBERG attended the university at Fort Worth, and took his bachelor's degree with honors in 1905. The same year he came to Evanston to pursue philosophical studies at the Northwestern University. He was called as instructor in English and mathematics in the Swedish Theological Seminary and asssumed this position at the opening of the school year that fall.

Mr. LUNDBERG is an eloquent speaker who uses Swedish and English with the same fluency. In 1903 he was chosen to represent the Fort Worth University in an inter-collegiate oratorical contest with seven other participants, and carried off the honors of the day, winning the oratorical prize, a large gold medal.
