Description

A letter of correspondence from Steen Nelson, co-founder of Nelson and Company, to Annie Tes Rae, a representative of the Southern Women's Study Club, dated July 20, 1938. In the letter, Nelson explains how the town of Oviedo was named. Andrew Aulin, Sr. (1843-1918) was the Swedish immigrant credited with naming the town of Oviedo, Florida. Aulin immigrated to Oviedo in 1870 and, in 1879, he was appointed the postmaster of the area formerly called the Lake Jesup Settlement. Aulin also founded the local Ionic Lodge, which was the predecessor to the Masonic Lodge. Aulin was married to Emma Leonora Lawton Aulin (1853-1907) and had five children: Theodore Aulin (1874-1907), Willie Aulin, Martha Lenora Aulin (b. 1844), Mary Hannah Aulin (1887-1974), and Andrew Aulin, Jr. (1893-1964).
