Kan det stemme at han ble gift i Norge?

Kenneth Bjork;

Hans O. Egeberg took the artium examination in Norway in 1895, and studied at the Dresden Polytechnicum for two years. He came to America in 1897 and completed his technical graduation at Cornell university.

From the time of his graduation in 1900 until his death in September 1973, Egeberg was employed in the steel industri, first in Chicago, then at Gary. Though his technical career included the supervision of construction, in Pittsburgh, of the machinery destined for the Gary Steel mills, his real life work began when he was made superintendant of labor. Egebergs knowledge of the immigrant and his problems, and his kindly interest in the men under his direction soon made him both friend and advisor to some sixty or seventy thousand employees, mostly South Europeans and Mexicans.

His problems multiplied in the early 1930´s, when lovered wages and unemployment caused great unrest, but his helpfullness and generosity was unfailing.When he died, the steel company arranged a public funeral. His body lay for two days in the city´s largest church and thousands passed by his coffin for a last look at their friend and benefactor.
