Claeson, Anders Magnus

Claeson, Anders Magnus a Swedish Baptist minister, was born in 1831. He was converted in early youth, and while studying at Linkoping, in 1857, in order to fit himself to become a school-teacher, opened a Sunday-school, which was such an innovation upon the old order of things that it awakened no small amount of opposition in the community. Having received an appointment from the American Baptist Publication Society, as one of its colporteurs in Sweden, he served them in that capacity from 1859 to 1866, and amid much persecution may be said to have laid the foundation for the Smoland Association of Baptist Churches. He died January 23, 1881. See National Baptist, March 24, 1881. (J.C.S.)
