Christian Wilhelm Kundeberg (1842-1911)

1911 Obituary [1]

CHRISTIAN WILHELM LUNDEBERO died at his residence in Stockholm on November 11, 1911. He was born in 1842, and was therefore in his sixty-ninth year.

He was a Member of Parliament in the Swedish Chamber of Representatives, and his influence and active participation in politics was such that in 1889 he became Vice-President of the Swedish Upper Chamber. On the accentuation of the strained relations between Norway and Sweden, which led to the ultimate dissolution of the Union, he became President of the Special Committee which framed the conditions of the dissolution, and in 1905 he became Prime Minister. On the completion of the negotiations in that year he resigned.

He was managing director of the Forsbacka Steel Works. Under his management considerable extensions were made to the works, which occupy the site of a seventeenth-century ironworks at the outlet of the Storjorn into the Gefle River.

He was a prominent member of the Jernkontoret, and was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1898, in which year he acted as a member of the Stockholm Reception Committee which entertained the Institute on the occasion of its visit to Sweden. When the members of the Institute visited Forsbacka they were entertained at luncheon by Dr. Lundeberg.
