Event Details

Karin Sveen, Author,The Immigrant and the University

Norwegian poet Sveen has unveiled the story of Peder Sather — Norwegian immigrant, important financier of mid-19th century America, founder of California's greatest public university and the man who Sather Gate at UC Berkeley memorializes. The story of a poor farm boy from a remote corner of Norway, who traversed continents to make a large fortune, which he then used to bring learning to generations of average citizens, serves as a monumental tribute to everything good and great about both Norway and the United States.
