Amateur Nebraskan accordionist of Norwegian stock in Willa Cather's short story "Eric Hermannson's Soul," first published in Cosmopolitan magazine in April 1900. He plays a dance.
"Well, I've got the music for your dance, Miss Elliot. Olaf Oleson will bring his accordion and Mollie will play the organ, when she isn't lookin' after the grub, and a little chap from Frenchtown will bring his fiddle—though the French don't mix with the Norwegians much."
