Inside the Rolvaag Library at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota is a special library devoted to the philosopher Soren Kierkegaard. The student in the photo is named Christian. He was one of several friendly people who spoke with us during our visit. He said people come from all over the world to study at this world's largest Kierkegaard collection. In the library is a framed certificate honoring Howard V. and Edna H. Hong for their translations of Kierkegaard. The Hongs were also honored by the busts in this photo.
