Can any Finlander identify Kalle Palander, winning downhill skier, as a Swedish Finn? If so I will include him in the bunch of Swedish Finn names of which we should be aware at the FinnFest 2004 exhibit compiled by SFHS.
Many thanks!

Syrene,

I have seen no info that Kalle Palander would have indicated that he would have Swedish-Finn roots. Hard to say, but I would wonder if it wouldn't be more probable that he has some ancestors from the Swedish side of the boarder since Torneň is m.o.l. on the boarder.
