and his wife Frøydis visited Duluth many times. Asmund played a very
key role in the restoration of the Leif Erikson.
worked with his brother
Petersen~Øverlier and restoration project volunteers, to ensure that the
work was done in the proper manner, using the authentic ways and supplies to
rebuild it in the fashion in which the ship was originally constructed. Much
of his correspondence indicated the interest that he and the people of
Norway had in keeping the ship from disrepair, and to preserve it for
historical and heritage purposes.
Soon we will be
adding a gallery of the letters from Asmund.
