Biographical Note for Moldstad, Edle :

The Moldstad sisters, from DeForest, Wisconsin, spent June 1900 through February 1901 traveling throughout Europe.  They spent much of their time in their ancestral land of Norway, with stops in Berlin, Paris and London before returning home.  The sisters attended Lutheran Ladies’ Seminary in Red Wing, Minnesota.  Edle married Wilford Johnson, a Luther College graduate, in 1902, and all three of their sons attended Luther as well.
