On December 15th, Erland Magnusson, one of the founders of U.S. Friends of Chalmers passed away. Erland has been an avid supporter of Chalmers over the years and will be severely missed by the Chalmers community, both in the U.S. and in Sweden.
Erland was not only one of the founders of U.S. Friends of Chalmers; before that, he was also the chairman of CING North America for many years and did a lot to bring the Chalmers community in the U.S. and Canada closer together. I had the privilege to meet with Erland in October, 2017, you can read about our conversation here.
It was with great sadness we learned about Erland’s passing and our thoughts are with his family and loved ones.
