SWEDEN
1953

SUSTAINED progress toward the international enactment of calendar reform was reported at the Seventh Annual Meeting 15 January 1954 of The World Calendar Association, International, held in the International Building, New York City. Published highlights (JCR Vol. 24, April 1954) for SWEDEN:

There have been increased activities regarding calendar reform in Sweden during 1953. These have centered abound the interest shown in the subject by Dr. Hilding Törnebohm, head of SKF, the Swedish Ball Bearing Company. Early in the year, Dr. Törnebohm gave a lecture at a Rotary meeting in Gothenburg. This received wide comment in the press. About the same time a comprehensive "Appeal to Parliamentarians" was distributed to members of the Diet, editors, educators and industrialists. In August Mr. James Avery Joyce of London, representing the British Section of The World Calendar Association, spent several days in Stockholm and conferred particularly with Mr. Thore Peterson of the Ministry of Education. It is this Ministry which in Sweden deals with calendar matters, in liaison with the Ministry of Commerce. Mr. Peterson is the chief Swedish delegate to UNESCO, and will act in an advisory capacity on calendar matters with the Swedish delegation at ECOSOC. He is well informed on all phases of calendar reform, and sympathetic with the proposed international action.
