Hello Erica

Re the promouncing of the name "Almgren". How do you pronounce the "ALM" part. My father used to pronounce the "al" part as in Allan, but our family in Seattle pronounced it so it sounds more like "alms for the poor". My father's name was Nels Olaf Almgren and he said the kids called him Nels-Oh-laugh-and-grin.
