Early 20th Century
We have little data on this author, but we suspect he is Gustav A. Pihlblad (1886–1970), who is buried in Lakewood Cemetery, Minneapolis, Minnesota:
- The November 12, 1930, issue of the North Park Press, page 4, published by North Park College, mentions
Rev. Gustav Pihlblad as being an alumnus of the college. G. A. Pihlblad’s hymn appeared in a 1931 hymnal of the Evangelical Covenant Church, whose seminary is at North Park.
- Pihlblad’s I Would Go to Heaven was published in Minneapolis in Nathaniel Carlson’s 1932 Songs of Trust and Triumph No. 3.
