In 1938 he became a member of the Estonian Academy of Sciences and, in 1944, he fled the Soviet occupation to Sweden and worked there until 1947 as an archive assistant. From then until shortly before his death he held a position in the folk archives of the University of Uppsala. Tall 8vo., printed wraps; 20 pages. Item #56631
