Carl Carlson Lindberg (1851-1900)

1900 Obituary [1]

CARL CARLSON LINDBERG died on February 12, 1900. He was born on July 30, 1851, at the Carlsdahl Ironworks, Karlskoga, Sweden, works purchased by his grandfather in 1824. His father, Carl Lindberg, who was one of the leading ironmasters of his time, did much to develop the Carlsdahl works, and introduced there in 1862 the Bessemer process, the second plant erected in Sweden. Carl Carlson Lindberg profited by the training he received from his eminent father. He was educated at Gothenburg and at the Stockholm School of Mines. After a varied experience in iron ore mining, he was in 1883 appointed manager of the Lax& Works, which under his charge developed in a remarkable manner. He was a member of Council of the Swedish Association of Ironmasters, and was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1888. He was one of the five members of the Executive Committee that arranged the reception of the Institute in Stockholm in 1898, and he hospitably entertained the members of the Western Excursion at Lax& Works.
