He had been the head of the Bonnier firm since 1900, when he succeeded his father, Albert Bonnier, founder of the company. He was also a former president of the Swedish Book Publishers’ Association. In 1937, the 100th anniversary of the firm, he set up a fund of a million kroner ($250,000) to aid authors, journalists and book illustrators.
