  • Notes 
    • He was Commander of the Salvation Army, and a hymn-writer. He trained at a folkskoleseminariet in Linköping, then worked as an elementary school teacher in Järla, Nacka. He joined the Salvation Army in 1883, and served as a soldier in Stockholm's Third Corps. He was Head of the Officer School (1888-1889), Field Secretary (1892), Chief Secretary in Norway (1895-1896), Head of the Salvation Army in Denmark (1896-1898), Head in Northern England (1898-1903), Commander in Finland (1903-1906), Commander in Norway (1906-1912), Head in Sweden (1912-1919), and Head in Germany (1919-1925). He wrote nine hymns, four of which are still included in the Salvation Army Songbook.

      He was awarded the Red Cross Medal and received the personal thanks of German president Hindenburg for his relief work in Germany following World War I. He was also a Commander of the Vasa Order, Second Class (Swedish).

      He and his wife Kristine toured the western United States from December 1926 through February 1927. He and his wife Maren, of Stockholm, appear on the passenger list of the S.S. Stockholm, which left Göteborg on 17 September 1926. Ship's passenger lists show he and his wife arrived in New York from Göteborg on 28 September 1926. He spoke in Spokane (31 December 1926), Tacoma (4 January 1927), Everett (5 January), Bellingham (6 January), and Seattle, Washington (7 January); Portland, Oregon (11 January); San Francisco (15 January), Oakland (16 January), San Francisco (18 January), Lytton (20 January), San Franscisco (21 January), Turlock (22 January), Kingsburg (23 January), Los Angeles (25 January), San Diego (26 January), and Los Angeles (27 January), California; Salt Lake City, Utah (30 January); and Denver, Colorado (1 February). During this brief visit, he was expected to visit his foster sister, Mrs. Josephine Swanstrom, of Rock Springs, Wyoming. Presumably he did so, as her children were impressed with him, and one of them, Ellen, joined the Salvation Army in Denver.

      A play about his life, Kommendör Øgrim, by Per-Olof Ilhammar, was performed in Överum in the summer of 2009.

      In addition to the children listed here, Wikipedia says, "A daughter, Major Mrs. Lydia Sundström, also served mostly in Sweden, but also had assignments in Norway." (http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johan_%C3%96grim)
