SOREN P. PETERSEN..
Since 1918 Soren P. Petersen has practiced law in Canora, and is numbered among the foremost barristers and solicitors in the city and district. He was born in Denmark, on the 22d of March, 1883, a son of Mads and Jensine (Nielson) Petersen, likewise natives of Denmark, where they are now residing. The father has always followed farming. In the pursuit of his early education Soren P. Petersen attended the pul)lic schools in the neighborhood of the home farm. Subsequently he enrolled in Copenhagen University, Denmark, and was graduated from that institution in 19O5. In 1911 he came to Canada and being unable to speak English, he was forced to work at whatever jobs he could find until he could master the language. He worked in Winnipeg for about three months and then came to Saskatchewan, where he has remained. He has lived in various towns in this province and in 1918 came to Canora. Soon after coming to this province Mr. Petersen took up the study of law and was admitted to the bar in 1918. He was at first associated here with the well known firm of McPhee & Petersen, but is now practic- ing independently and has a fine practice. Mr. Petersen was married to Miss Galdys Beaver, a native of Canada, and to them were born three children: Arnold, Margaret Louise, and one who has passed away. Mr. Petersen devotes the greater part of his time and attention to his professional interests, but he is a member of the local Chamber of Com- merce and is active in the promotion of many progressive civic move- ments. For recreation he turns to sports and is particularly fond of hockey and curling. Bibliography follows:
