Abstract

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.
