Rasmus Bjørn Anderson (1846-1936). "For several decades Anderson was the very 'hub' around which the cultural life of the Norwegian immigrants turned. It was he, in fact, who more than anyone else aroused in them an early interest in their rich heritage, and in the history of their people on both sides of the Atlantic". - Lloyd Hustvedt: Rasmus Bjørn Anderson, 1966.
