Suncadia (Resort), Suncadia Fund for Community Enhancement
Doris Maras discusses the immigration of her maternal grandparents, John and Anna Lindberg, and paternal grandparents, Andrew and Brita Jaderlund, from Sweden to Ronald and Roslyn, Washington. Lawrence Jaderlund (b. 1903), Doris’s father, worked in the Northwestern Improvement Company No. 3 Mine and No. 5 Mine. Doris describes her life growing up in a Swedish family in Ronald and discusses how major national events of the twentieth century changed life at home.
The cover image shows Ronald, Washington, circa 1912. The town of Ronald, two miles west of Roslyn, was built on Northwestern Improvement Company land when the No. 3 Mine was opened in the late 1880s. The town was named in honor of Alexander Ronald, Superintendent of the Northwestern Improvement Company mines.
