Albert N. Carlblom
Albert Carlblom was born in Cokato, Minn. to a family of Swedish Lutheran immigrants. He was the son of John G. and Elizabeth Anderson Carlblom and graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College in 1886. Following several years of teaching and terms of public office in Sargent County, North Dakota, he married Josephine Peterson in 1898. A year later he became North Dakota State Auditor. After serving two terms as State Auditor, he did not seek re-election to the office in 1902. Instead he chose to return to the prairie and operate the first building constructed in Gwinner, North Dakota. In 1920 he died at a hospital in Breckenridge from injuries incurred from a cyclone. He had three children: Vera Lenore Carlblom, Edna Carlblom Howell, and Albert N. Carlblom.
The Correspondence and Other Papers of Albert N. Carlblom are available for research use at the Gustavus Adolphus College and Lutheran Church Archives.
