Västgöta Bengtsson
Birth: 1908
Death: Nov. 5, 2000

Ethnologist, Educator, Author. His name was Sixten Bengtsson, but to the people of Sweden, he was to be known as ”Västgöta-Bengtsson”. ”Västgöta” indicates the province of Västergötland where he throughout his life pursued research and documentation of peasant living, national characters, idioms and philology. He educated the people of Sweden on these subjects through TV, books, radio programmes and lectures. With a great sence of humour and immense knowledge he made his name as one of the nation´s most distiguished ethnologists ever. For his achievements he was appointed Honorary Doctor of Philosophy. (bio by: Peter Robsahm)
