When Axel Svensson moved from his tenement home in Bjuv, Sweden, at the age of eight to ease his family’s financial burden, he began an odyssey that would extend over a quarter-century and thousands of miles. It took him four years working as an indentured servant until he was finally able to make it to America. He traveled the Midwest until he finally married and settled in Ames, Iowa, where he assumed the managership of the local J.C. Penney store.
