Andrew G. Lundstrom

Andrew Gustaf. Lundstrom was born on April 1, 1868 in Sweden. His parents were Peter E. Lundstrom and Brita Persdotter. He married Charlotte Johnson, Ida Louise Johnson in 1894, Lucile Olson on March 14, 1918, and Selma Olson on January 3, 1923 and had seven children. He died in Logan, Utah on October 21, 1951.

Mr. Lundstsrom was a prominent local businessman, working as president and manager of the Lundstom Furniture & Carpet Company. He was a member of the Logan City Council.

Mr. Lundstom served seven 2-year terms as mayor of Logan City, the bulk of this time being the difficult economic and social years of the Great Depression. Despite these difficulties, under his administration the municipal power plant was saved and strengthened, the city tax levy was reduced, many miles of new roads were built and about $700,000 in assets added to the city's property account. Considered by many to be a true public servant, Mr. Lundstrom accepted not a cent of money and paid all his own expenses during his fourteen years as mayor.
