Svend Foyn og lokalmiljøet / Per Thoresen.

Title: Svend Foyn og lokalmiljøet / Per Thoresen.
Translated title: Svend Foyn and the local environment.
Author(s): Thoresen, Per.
Date: 1995.
Publisher: Tønsberg, Norway: Vestfold Historielag
Language: Norwegian.
In: Vestfoldminne 1995 : Svend Foyn - en kontroversiell samfunnsbygger. (1995.),
Abstract: Paper discusses problem of Great Men in history, as Foyn appeared at time when need for new work in Vestfold was dire, but was he just catalyst? New ideas and techniques were developing in Britain and on continent. Yet Foyn's separation from Elise was certainly factor in his going to Finnmark, where he developed harpooning, with help of Swede Ericsson's propeller and (someone)'s grenade harpoon. Author concludes that spread to Arctic Ocean and world's oceans was to Foyn's credit, though he would ascribe all to God.
