Title

August Remert papers, 1832-1942

Description

Correspondence, clippings, articles, reports, and photographs of a Norwegian-born New York attorney. The correspondence deals largely with family affairs in America, Norway, and Scotland. The letters by James Denoon Reymert, August's uncle, first editor of "Nordlyset" (1847), first Norwegian-American member of a state legislature (Wisconsin), and attorney, deal with opportunities for law practice on the American frontier. Ole Bull was also a correspondent. Other items include biographical sketches of family members, a family chart, and an article about Hans Balling, the portrait painter. See "Studies and Records," volume 12, 1941. August Reymert was a son of Theodor Denoon Reymert, a major in the sanitation division of the Norwegian army; a nephew of James Denoon Reymert; president of the Norwegian American Chamber of Commerce in New Yori; and founder of the Scandinavian seamen's home in New York and of the Norwegian hospital in Brooklyn. He was named Knight, First Class, of the Order of St. Olav and was also decorated with the Vasa Order. See Reymert letter (Nov. 13, 1928) in O.E. Rølvaag Papers.
