”Ett fy fan vid tanken på lutfisk” : om ett bortglömt lundaoriginal från 1800-talets mitt

Ullstad, Henrik LU (2019) In Lundensaren : Nyhetsbrev för alumner
Abstract (Swedish)
Överliggare är något som Lunds universitet har haft gott om, och deras namn skymtar förbi som skuggor från en förfluten punschdoftande tid; ”Den Siste Athenaren” Otto Steiman, Sam Ask, Adolf Herrlin – listan kan göras lång. Likaså har Lunds universitet haft gott om akademiska original, både sådana som gjort karriär, och sådana som aldrig ens tagit en examen.

Arkivarien vid universitetsarkivet Henrik Ullstad berättar här historien om ytterligare ett av dessa överliggaroriginal; den vidunderlige rabulisten, prästkandidaten, kolportören, skräddarhataren, väl- och långtalaren samt pamflettisten Erik August Torbjörnsson.
Abstract
Lund has had its fair share of eternal students, and their names appear like shadows from an arrack punch-flavoured past: “The Last Athenian” Otto Steiman, Sam Ask, Adolf Herrlin – the list goes on. Similarly, Lund University has had many academic eccentrics, both of the kind who made a career for themselves and the kind who never even completed a degree.

Here, University archivist Henrik Ullstad tells the story of yet another of these eternal student eccentrics, the wonderful rabble-rouser, trainee priest, book peddler, tailor-hater, eloquent and long-winded speaker and pamphletist Erik August Torbjörnsson.
