Approved biography for Carl J. Agrell
(Courtesy of Christian Peterson)
Carl J. Agrell was born in Superior, Wisconsin, on February 20, 1900, and made his way to Minneapolis by 1920, when he was listed in the city directory as a student. He became an enthusiastic outdoorsman and in 1924 began practicing as a dentist. He joined the Minneapolis Camera Club, and exhibited his work in the Minneapolis Salon of Photography in 1933, 1934, and 1935. Agrell made some of his pictures with paper negatives, a process that imparted soft-focus effects and allowed manipulation of the image by hand. In 1938, he moved to St. Paul, where he continued as a dentist until his death on July 14, 1967.
