Frideborg Winblad (1869-1964) aka Boj Winblad. She was a schoolteacher and later the principal of the school in Härnösand, Sweden. (b. January 18, 1869, Prästbordet, Anundsjö, Västernorrland, Sweden - d. November 30, 1964, Härnösand, Västernorrland, Sweden) Personal Code Number 18690118-780.




By 1890 she was living in Prestbolet with her parents, and working alongside her father. Frideborg graduated from the Teacher's School in Umeå at age 27 in 1896. She moved to Härnösand on October 5, 1896, and lived at #137, 8th quarter in the city. In 1900 she was still living in Härnösand by herself and was working as a teacher (lärarinna).


In 1927 she wrote Landstingets småskoleseminarium 1877-1927 (The County Council's small school seminar 1877-1927).

In August 1956 she wrote to Ulla Margareta Kempe (1932- ) and Börje Pettersson (1932- ) the following:

Dear Ulla and Börje, with my little engagement gift I send you the warmest greetings for your common future. It's like this, that if problems occur, it's nice to be two. Because a shared burden is only a half burden, and shared happiness is double! I have no experience of my own, since I'm 'happily un-married', as someone said. But I do think that it's true. Don't forget to invite Jesus to your wedding as well as for the weekdays! He'll love to come, and not just that, he also wants to stay! Yours sincerely, your old friend Auntie Boj.


Frideborg died on November 30, 1964 at the Fristad Nursing Home, Härnösand, Västernorrland, Sweden. She was buried in Anundsjö, Västernorrland län, with her parents. She was 95 years old and was listed in the death book as "Frideborg Vinblad".


Frideborg died on November 30, 1964 and she was buried in Härnösand, Västernorrland län, Sweden. Her obituary in Västernorrlands Allehanda on December 2, 1964 noted that:

Frideborg Winblad Död. Förra seminarierektorn fröken Frideborg Winblad, Härnösand, avled på måndagen på sjukhemmet Fristad, där hon vistats de senaste åren. Hon var 95 är gammal. Frideborg Winblad var en av vårt lands märkeskvinnor på små skol eundervisningens område. När statsmakterna på sin tid igångsatte utredning om lärareutbildningens bättre utveck-lingsmöjligheter samt utarbetande av förslag till ny undervisningsplan kallades fröken Winblad att delta i arbetet som enda kvinnliga medlem i kommitten. Hon var även vice ordförande i styrelsen för Småskoleseminariernas lärareförening under en lång följd av år. Frideborg Winblad var född i Bredbyn, där fadern var kantor. Efter examen vid folkskollärarinneseminariet i Umeå 1896 kom hon som lärarinna till småskoleseminariet i Härnösand och blev 1907 föreståndarinna för seminariet. Denna befattning innehade hon till 1929, då hon pensionerades. Genom sitt vän-sälla väsen vann hon tillgivenhet bland kolleger, elever och vänner, vilkas tacksamhet tog sig uttryck i en insamling till en stipendiefond med hennes namn, som företogs till 70-års-dagen. Närmast sörjande är syskonbarn och deras familjer.

"Frideborg Winblad Dead. The former local principal Miss Frideborg Winblad, Härnösand, died on Monday at the nursing home Fristad, where she resided her last years. She was 95 years old. Frideborg Winblad was one of the country’s notable women in the area of elementary school education. When government authorities in her time set into motion an investigation on better developmental possibilities for teacher education and preparation of proposals for new teaching plans, Miss Winblad was called to participate on the work as the only female member of the committee. She was even vice chairman of the board of directors for the elementary school teacher’s association for a long succession of years. Frideborg Winblad was born in Bredbyn, where her father was cantor. After graduation from the elementary school teacher program in Umeå in 1896, she came to the elementary school in Härnösand as a teacher and in 1907 became head of the school. This post she held until 1929, when she retired. Through her friendly nature she won the affection of her colleagues, students and friends, whose gratitude was expressed in the collection of a scholarship fund in her name, which was made on her 70th birthday. She is mourned by her nieces and nephews and their families."


She was buried in Anundsjö Kyrkogård. The grave plot is 'GA' and the number '61-64'." The plot contains:

  • Lennart Haglund (1928) writes on July 10, 2005: "I had a phone call from Anundsjö this morning, an answer to my earlier question about A.J. Winblad. His grave is there and will be preserved for the future (due to a decision from 1955), as it is situated close to the church and [is] part of its 'milieu'. At least the stone will not be moved. A.J. Winblad is buried there and so is his wife (hustru) and daughter (dotter). A 'Frideborg Winblad' was mentioned, maybe an early burial. The last known 'grave right holder' was a Frideborg Winblad, a 'rektor' (headmaster or principal) from Härnösand, not far from Ytterlännäs. She is also buried there, if I remember it right in 1964. The grave plot is 'GA' and the number '61-64'."
  • Lennart Haglund (1928) writes on July 11, 2005: "When I search for Frideborg Winblad in my death [database] I get nothing from the name, which is not unusual. [Searching] for a woman born 1869 and dead 1964, your Frideborg appears, I'm sure, though nameless: 'Unmarried and dead on November 30, 1964 in Härnösand.' Her birthplace is called unknown here."
  • Årsböcker i Svensk Undervisningshistoria (Yearbooks in Swedish Teaching History) in 1964: "Winblad v. ordf., Andrén sekr. och kassör samt rektorerna Olga Hjelmström, Malmköping, och Gustaf Janzon, Linköping, till 1927, då han ... Jonsson, N. Otto Jacobsson och Frideborg Winblad, för vilken Jacobsson lämnade en redogörelse." which translates as: "... Jonsson, N. Otto Jacobsson and Frideborg Winblad, for which Jacobson submitted a report."
