From the life of Andrew Jenson:   In 1909 he was called to preside over the Scandinavian Mission and left home to fill that mission in January, 1909. During his sojourn in Scandinavia this time he traveled extensively in Denmark, Sweden and Norway and delivered illustrated lectures on “Mormonism” in many of the principal cities of Denmark and Norway: he also visited in Germany, Holland, Belgium, France and Great Britain with members of his family. While presiding in Denmark and Norway he published large editions of the Book of Mormon and the Peal of Great Price in Danish and returned home by way of Russian, Siberia, Japan and Hawaii, thus circumnavigating the globe a second time. Since his return home from the mission in July, 1912, he has been busily engaged at the Historian’s office, dictating to stenographers and putting into readable shape the vast manuscript material which he has gathered in many lands and climes during the past thirty years. In 1913 he published a second volume of the L. D. S. Biographical Encyclopedia and the third or concluding volume of that work of reference is not in the hands of the printer. Up to the present time Elder Andrew Jenson has traveled about 300,000 miles in the interest of Church history.
