Boberg's missing link

You are here

I think the fact that there is no link between the Boberg PEOPLE page and "O store Gud" except via the transliterated-Korean version is just weird. I'm sure there must be some way to link this fellow, whose 150th birthday we're celebrating this year, to his best-known product. I know many hymnals treat Stuart K. Hine as the author, but others correctly credit Boberg, including those (such as the Covenant Hymnal, the New Century Hymnal, and the 1950 Swedish-Baptist Gospel Hymnal) that bypass the Hine text...

This shows the need for authority resolution. Someone has to connect the Korean transliterated version to the main authority record. Do you want to give it a try? You can refer to the authority tutorial if necessary.
