My father was a member of a Swedish Men’s Choir which made a two month tour of the USA in 1954, leaving Sweden on August 25 and returning on October 22. Such a long non-profit tour involving 40 middle aged men, leaving their jobs and families, mostly paying their way themselves, or through contributions along the tour, would be difficult to repeat today.

The choir made the westbound crossing on the Gripsholm of 1925 and the eastbound crossing on the Kungsholm of1953. I have now made seven web pages about the tour. The Lindsborg Convention and Visitors Bureau in Lindsborg, Kansas, has posted a link to the pages on their facebook page.
