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 greatly missed by the Chalmers community, both in the U.S. and in Sweden.
Erland was not only the founder 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 closed together. I had the priviledge to meet with Erland in October, 2017, you can read about the visit here
It was with great sadness we learned about Erland’s passing and our thoughts are with his family and loved ones.
