Olof Gustav Nordenstrom (c1835-1902)


1902 Obituary [1]

OLOF GUSTAV NORDENSTROM died at Atvidaberg on September 6, 1902, at the age of sixty-seven.

From 1878 to 1900 he was Professor of Mining at the Stockholm School of Mines. He was the author of a large number of important memoirs on mining, and did much to advance mining practice in Sweden. He was a member of the Swedish Academy of Sciences, and in 1898 was awarded the gold medal of the Swedish Association of Ironmasters. He was not a member of the Iron and Steel Institute, but as member of the local Reception Committee in Stockholm in 1898 he contributed largely to the success of the Institute's meeting in that capital. At that meeting he read an exhaustive paper on the prominent and characteristic features of Swedish iron ore mining.
