"A most desired place for Danish folks to settle." That
keynote launched the campaign to attract Danes to Junction
City. Who was the herald? What were the tidings?
The records are not particularly informative about A. C.
Nielsen. The Junction City Times only used the initials "A. C."
to refer to him. According to his great-grandson, Alfred
Christensen, his first name was Andreas and his middle
name was Christian, both common names in Denmark.
