Otto Wilhelm Eriksen, an electrician, was one of the Norwegian Sailors who cured in Saranac Lake during World War II. He was apparently treated and died at Stony Wold Sanatorium. Unfortunately, no "Report of a Case of Tuberculosis" card was found for him in the Adirondack Collection of the Saranac Lake Free Library. He is buried in Pine Ridge Cemetery with the other Norwegian sailors.
