Biography from Birger Sandzen Memorial Gallery:
Lydia Sohlberg Deere
(1873-1943)

Lydia Sohlberg Deere, was an art student under Birger Sandzén at Bethany College. She took classes from Dr. Sandzén from the fall of 1922 and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in the spring of 1923. She subsequently studied with him in 1929.

Lydia was born August 22, 1873 at Holmes City, Douglas County, Minnesota. She was the youngest of eight children born to Anders Gustaf and Ingrid Anderson Sohlberg, Swedish-American pioneers, who came to America in 1854 on their honeymoon.

Lydia’s elementary school training was in her father’s home where she, her brothers, sisters and some neighbor children were taught by a bachelor who lived in the house.
In 1880 the family moved to McPherson, Kansas. Mrs. Deere received a B.A. degree from McPherson College. She moved to Lindsborg and opened a millinery shop on Main Street. In 1907 she was the Lady Principal of Lane Hart Women’s Dormitory at Bethany. She also taught classes in handwork and embroidery at the College.
On August 7, 1916, she was married to Professor Emil O. Deere of Lindsborg in San Jose, California.

Local landscapes and floral still-lifes were the subjects of her paintings in watercolors and oils. Lindsborg, the Blue Valley in Kansas, and frequent trips by train to California provided subject matter for her art. Trips with her husband to the Rocky Mountains and the Grand Teton areas were another source of subject matter for her painting.

From time to time Lydia showed her art in Wichita and Topeka but most often locally. She died in her home at North First Street in July of 1943.
