CARL GUSTAV WAHLBERG, of Bofors, Sweden, died on February 16, 1914.

He was born at Stockholm in 1870, and graduated at the Royal Naval College in 1891 and at the Academy of Artillery and Military Engineering in 1898. He held the position of Controller to the Navy at Bofors from 1898 to 1901, but vacated it to take up a post at the Bofors Works, where, in 1904, he became Director of Artillery and at the same time general superintendent of the whole plant, a position he occupied at the time of his death. He had a very high reputation both as a naval officer and as an expert on guns both for the Navy and the Artillery.

He was a member of the Association of Swedish Naval Officers, and was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1905.
