Bo seems to have many interests and even sufferings
Bo started his studies at Uppsala University in Sweden in the faculty of medicine. However his interests were such that he chooses to follow in his fathers Axel's footsteps, who successfully run a dairy operation, which was started by Axel and his mother Johanna. For this reason Bo wanted to have an education covering the dairy venture as well as farm economy. This combination in studies was not available in Sweden in a rational way. He applied to Cornell University and was accepted and graduated 1935. Cornell University has always been closed to his heart and after what is known he fonded a professor position in economy. Bo took actively part in reunions at Cornell and was understood to have some advisory functions at the university. He was warmly attached with the old school and is believed to have been an inspiration to his sister Elna to start her studies at Cornell.
Bo's intentions after completion of his studies were to return to Sweden and start working with his father at Arla Dairy, which had become a successful enterprise. However during his time at Cornell dairy farmers in western Sweden wanted to start cooperative dairy productions of there own and with support of the governing political party and threats of non deliveries Arla dairy changed hands. Bo therefore stayed in USA and bought three milk dairies in New Jersey and delivered dairy products to households in Hillside. This enterprise expanded further into Sunrise Dairy. He operated successfully this dairy for 30 years and sold out to the competition in the mid sixties and 1966 he and Bobbie (Barbara) left New Jersey and moved to Vermont.
Skiing and the Swedish ski club in New York.
Bo participated in various Swedish organisations in New York. Two of these were The Swedish Trade Commission and the Swedish Ski club. He enjoyed especially his cross-country skiing. My brother Lars and others has said that Bo was never happier than when he was on skis. Bo brought new life to this club and having sold the dairy he suggested to the ski club that he should search for a suitable place at a reasonable price to the club, which then would be a permanent home for the skiing Swedes. Bo travelled and searched and found the house in Chester. He become so enchanted in the place that he suggested that he himself should purchase the estate but make available the facility to the club members during the ski season. Bohus became a much-loved retreat to all the club members.
