HistoryLink.org Essay 3374 : Printer-Friendly Format

On about January 30, 1936, the Swedish Newspaper Svenska Posten begins publication in Seattle. It will publish for 40 years, from 1936 to 1976. It forms from the merger of the Svenska Journalen (1926-1936 in Seattle), Puget Sound Posten, and the Oregon Posten.

The editor and publisher in 1936 was Einar Carlson. In 1940 it was published at 1632 8th Avenue. In April 1946, the Svenska Posten acquired the Svenska Pacific Tribunen (1889-1946). By 1948, the paper moved to 2228 1st Avenue, where it remained until publication ceased on December 28, 1976.
