Scout, Trip, Newspaper, Colony
Scandinavians settled with those of their own kind and
language, being drawn by relatives and friends who had
gone before them, but also through newspapers circulated
among them. Den Danske Pioneer was widely read among
Danes and may well have been the source of information
about the settling of northeastern Montana. Mr. E. F.
Madsen, an immigrant and intellectual who had made a
scouting trip to that area about 1905 urged other Danes to
settle together and establish a Danish colony.
