  • A visit to the Swedish American Museum Center that will take place following the Germanists Discussion Group meeting.
    • The Museum is located at 5211 North Clark Street.
    • Click on Välkommen! to enter heir web site.
    • The Museum is open 11:00 am – 4:00 pm on Sundays.
  • Following the Germanists Discussion Group meeting, let us meet in the lobby of the Palmer House and at 12:15 pm proceed to the nearest Red-Line EL station for a $2.00 ride to the Museum.
    • The tour is scheduled to begin at 1:00.
    • I am told that taking the El and walking to the Museum from the Berwyn Station takes no more time than does a taxi-ride from the Palmer House to the Museum.

V. Other topics (we probably won’t have time to go through this list), for example:

  • Gifts of Scandinavian books – before the flood, après le deluge.
  • Report on vendors
  • Research on new electronic resources
  • Conference reports SASS, trip reports, research topics

Med hjärtliga hälsningar,
