SJÖGREN, Anton.
(1822 - 1893)

(Born: Lofta, Småland, Sweden, 25 November 1822; Died: Nynäs, Södermanland, Sweden, 19 June 1893) Swedish mineralogist & mining engineer.

Sjögren studied in Lund from 1842 and took his Ph. D. 1847. Made a mining carrier and worked as blabla in the the A and B ore-fields in Värmland, the province where he also was "bergmästare" until retiring 1889. Sjögren, like Igelström, was one of the pioneers in describing the minerals from the Långban type deposits, and published more than 20 articles on the subject.
